Writer and editor Adam Bulger returns to the podcast to talk about some of his favorite books. Along the way, he and Colin discuss how our literary tastes change, how to balance reading and writing, and why great books are kinda like great movies. Harry Potter fans: cover your ears! And not because of the liberal profanity throughout this episode. For others, Colin and Adam manage to discuss everything from Hunter S. Thompson to Truman Capote. Happy reading!
