March 2012 Media Thread

There was a re­cent dis­cus­sion con­sid­er­ing the idea of a monthly Book (later ex­panded to movies, links, etc) thread. The poll was pretty unan­i­mous that this was A Good Idea (tm). The past two threads have had a de­cent amount of ac­tivity, so let’s keep go­ing.

Post what you’re read­ing, listen­ing to, watch­ing, and your opinion of it. Post recom­men­da­tions to blogs. Post what­ever me­dia you feel like dis­cussing!


  • Please avoid down­vot­ing; this is a thread for shar­ing sub­jec­tive ex­pe­riences, and peo­ple should feel com­fortable post­ing their per­sonal opinion with­out fear­ing a karma back­lash. If you dis­agree with a per­son’s recom­men­da­tion, please post a com­ment to that effect.

  • If you want to post some­thing that (you know) has been recom­mended be­fore, but have an­other recom­men­da­tion to add, please link to the origi­nal, so that the reader has both recom­men­da­tions.

  • Please use the com­ment trees, which I was ap­par­ently too dumb to do.
