Last week we highlighted a feature from the excellent website Neglected Books detailing two articles that appeared in The New Republic in 1934 on good books that almost nobody has read. This week we’re offering our own list, and looking for your selections.

Barenaked Ladies - “Odds Are”
I just finished watching “The Quaterback” episode (Glee).
I cried a lot.
And I mean a lot.
I’ve watched it since its first pilot. I emotionally invested myself for years in these characters and who they were. Sure, some episodes were better than others but it did not change my connection with each of them.
After finding out one of the main characters died back in July. I was sad. Really sad. But what really made me cry was watching that episode.
The episode was the most genuine and heartfelt of them all. No tear was fake. No emotion was forced. You could tell they lost their colleague, their funny clown, and their best friend. We, the audience, lost someone with great potential.
Kudos to all the actors. Especially Lea Michele. I can’t imagine it being easy for her to go on the same sets and be surrounded by the people that would remind her the most about her fiancé and her best friend.
To anyone that reads this:
Cherish the people you love.
Live every day to its fullest.
It’s hard to dance with a devil on your back, so shake him off.
