Before he inspired the world with Hamilton and was catapulted to international fame, Lin-Manuel Miranda was inspiring his Twitter followers with words of encouragement at the beginning and end of each day. He wrote these original sayings, aphorisms, and poetry for himself as much as for others. But as Miranda’s audience grew, these messages took on a life on their own. Now Miranda has gathered the best of his daily greetings into a collection. Full of comfort and motivation, Gmorning, Gnight! is a touchstone for anyone who needs a quick lift.

Lin-Manuel Miranda’s voice and sentiments inspire, encourage, soothe, and comfort. He is a joy and a treasure.

This much we do know: Sophie Toscan du Plantier was murdered days before Christmas in 1996, her broken body discovered at the edge of her property near the town of Schull in West Cork, Ireland. The rest remains a mystery. Gripping, yet ever elusive, join the real-life hunt for answers in the year’s first not-to-be-missed, true-crime series.

Yes, this is a podcast, not a book. So what? It's brilliant! A moving, compelling story of a murder and justice as yet unsatisfied. What could be more gripping than hearing the tale told from so many angles by the people who experienced it first hand and a couple of narrators who cared enough about the story to spend three years to bring it life.

Clare and Henry have known each other since Clare was six and Henry was 36. They were married when Clare was 23 and Henry was 31. Impossible but true, because Henry is one of the first people diagnosed with Chrono-Displacement Disorder: periodically his genetic clock resets and he finds himself misplaced in time, pulled to moments of emotional gravity from his life, past and future. His disappearances are spontaneous, his experiences unpredictable, alternately harrowing and amusing.

What would have made The Time Traveler's Wife better?

I seem to be the only person on Earth who doesn't like this book. I was particularly annoyed by the narrators of the audiobook edition.

What didn’t you like about Fred Berman and Phoebe Strole ’s performance?

Her voice grated on me like nails on a chalkboard and his just bored me to tears/
