Sarah and Ben met with us once before to discuss Jim's novels, and now they return to talk about what they've been reading. The books and movies are too numerous to list here but we start our conversation with the novel Inferno by Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle and move on through the new Teen Age Ninja Turtles movie to Drive Your Plow Over The Bones of the Dead by Olga Tokarczuk and How to Live by Derek Sivers. This is our first official meeting of The Parasocial Book Club and we hope to have many more.
