February 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 (Both be­fore and af­ter I was kar­mas­sas­si­nated) that this was A Good Idea (tm), and daen­erys’s Ja­nu­rary thread (from which I ob­vi­ously stole a lot of this) was fairly suc­cess­ful, so let’s see if we ac­tu­ally need one per month.

Post what you’re read­ing or 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 see some­thing that 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.
