The Irrefutable Best Books of 2014, As Determined by Science*

Kristaaaa get some for LFL!

Sorry Television

IMG_0092It’s been a trying year here at Sorry Television. Sidetracked by work—and, let’s be honest, an endless procession of binge-worthy Netflix inventory—I am set to close out 2014 with a mere 32 books under my belt, near enough to bi-weekly that I should probably rebrand as You’re Welcome Television (subtitle: Reading Books Every So Often, Like When the Power Goes Out). I’m already planning redemptive 2015 reading goals (a book a day? a book an hour?) but for the time being I’ll have to accept mediocrity, and foist as much blame as possible on a shorter commute’s ability to stymie even the most dedicated bibliophile.

But I can claim a smidge of productivity this month, which is why I’m Indiana-Jonesing under the content door that is Christmas week to bring you The Irrefutable Best Books of 2014, a master list of this year’s greatest hits, as determined by 21 other “best of”s written by people who have actually read them…

Beer Blog-KRISTA THIS IS ME TAGGING YOU

Krista….possible hang out joints! I was inspired to look up cool breweries/dives in Alaska after reading this—->http://draftmag.com/americas-100-best-beer-bars-2015/, which includes my fav spot in Boston, Deep Ellum.

Disclaimer-I did not look up where in the cities any of these are so we might not be able to get to them…especially in Juneau, unless either of us can get a private plane by May.

Juneau (maybe Mark and Elaine Miller will come!!!!!!!)

They give tours! Of course, we would not be able to afford food but we could go for their flights
Have to insert a quick It’s Always Sunny quote

Mac-They’re also experimenting with a secret microbrew. Word on the street that it’s delicious and powerful.
Charlie-Bullshit! We’re the microbrew guys! They can’t take that!
Franks-Wait. You guys have a microbrew?
Charlie- Yes! We make a delicious, amazing microbrew!
Frank-Really?
Dee- Oh, it’s amazing. They-They throw all the skunk beer into a trash can.
And then they sell it for $10 a glass.
