Phyllis Le Chat Great list! I wish I'd thought of it.

Jessica Haider There are a couple of other lists on goodreads about books featured on The Daily Show. See here: https://www.goodreads.com/list/tag/th...

Thanks! I'll definitely check them out. But I'm actually maxed on the number of books I can add at the moment - no more than 100. As people are voting for their favorites, I'm removing my votes so that they can stand on their own, and using my own votes to bring other books into the list. So for new books to go in, people need to vote for the ones they like. Or add them themselves.

Thanks so much!


message 8: by Sean (new)

Sean Judith Miller's "The Story" was definitely *not* recommended by The Daily Show. Are you kidding me? Jon Stewart trashed it more emphatically than I have ever seen him trash another book, by far:

http://jezebel.com/jon-stewart-grilli...
http://mashable.com/2015/04/30/judith...

It should be removed from this list.

I add the books if they've been promoted on the show. You'll note that there are a few others here that were on and disputed by Jon, but they were still promoted on the show, and so they are included.
