Episode Info:

This week we read Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach with our special guest, Eli Yudin (What A Time To Be Alive)! This 1970’s masterpiece spent 37 weeks on the NYT bestseller list. It sold more than one million copies two years after being released. In 1977 this under 10,000 word book was adapted to a movie with music by Neil Diamond! So it must be good, right? Wrong.

Mean Book Club is four ladies (UCB, BuzzFeed, College Humor, Impractical Jokers) who read, discuss and whine about NYT bestselling books that have questionable literary merit. It's fun. It's cathartic. It's perfect for your commute. New podcast (almost) every Tuesday!

Here’s the book list for Season 8:

- [ ] Neon Prey by John Sandford
- [ ] Gerald’s Game by Stephen King
- [ ] Gossip Girl by Cecily Von Ziegesar
- [ ] The Girls by Emma Cline
- [ ] The TB12 Method by Tom Brady
- [ ] The Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman
- [ ] Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach
- [ ] Flowers in the Attic by V. C. Andrews
