What to Book: While I’m browsing news tabs, watching TV, and proofreading Tweets, my wife Gina is powering through piles of the season’s top novels to come up with a list of the best of the best. Here for your reading pleasure is The What’s Best Fiction List – Spring 2019. “Many novels fall into our category of Smarter Beach Reads, not too unlike Yacht Rock, which means nothing too depressing or intense. We save those lists for the winter.”

+ What to Radiate: If you’re the type who prefers your depressing and intense content year round, then check out the excellent miniseries Chernobyl on HBO. It has heaping portions of both, with a side of radiation.

+ What to Watch: Ava DuVernay’s much anticipated Netflix series on the Central Park Five is out. When They See Us. If you’d prefer a documentary on the topic, they try Ken Burns: The Central Park Five.
