Reading for me is a contact sport. I get review copies of books from publishers for free. I generally keep those books. Most become book reviews and podcasts. Afterward, the books are too marred and dog-eared to do anything with. Sometimes I lend them out, but they are generally not readable by anyone else but me.
Here is the list, in no particular order, with links to the podcasts or video.
