Three Percent #151: A Time for Gifting
After a long conversation about a rather strange Rochester gathering of arts organizations, Chad and Tom get down to business: recommending their favorite books of 2018. Except, rather than just make a list, they decide which of their friends or relatives should receive each of these titles. Then they talk about a couple movies, heists, and NXIVM.
This is the blank book they were making fun of:
A (hopefully) complete list of the recommended titles:
The Shift by Russell Carleton
Seasonal Associate by Heike Geissler
