Our 2019 Book List

If you’ve listened to the podcast you know something about our highly scientific method of choosing what books we’re going to read. The patented process involves having a drink or three and finding numbers around us in the pub - this year it was an old favorite - The Pub at Third Place Books in Seattle's Ravenna neighborhood, which features a large selection of boardgames, books, beers and collectively drawn sketchbooks.

We plug the numbers into our working list of David Bowie’s 100 books and, ta da! The books are revealed. These aren’t in any order yet, since we’re waiting to line up some special guests, etc.
