    Well, OUR best of 2012.

    Join us as Tod, Julia, and Rider go through the Top 5 books they read this year. Which of the books from previous episodes did they select? Did Pillars of the Earth make the grade? How about Sweet Valley High?

    Classics, new favorites, graphic novels, children’s books, and even audiobooks all make an appearance in this in-depth New Year’s discussion.

    And then Tod decides it’s time for a lightning round “Best Of” in all sorts of other categories, including, but not limited to, Best Cheese of 2012.

    And yes, dear listeners, Julia sings again.

    The imdb page for “This is Where I leave You” sounds like Rider’s nightmare might come true. Zac Efron.

    Kate Maruyama has an annotation up of Beautiful Ruins. Looking forward to reading it. My book pile just got higher. Also ordering Stoner.

    Really loved this particular podcast, because I think I’ve been stuck in a Classics rut recently; every time I go out to buy a book, I pick up something familiar from a familiar author because I don’t know how I’m going to like anything different and I don’t seem to have time enough these days to go through all the bad stuff and discover the good ones for myself. But the general discussions of the thematics and narrative and plot here give me a fairly good idea of what I’ll like and what I should be looking up!
