Becca (Becca_Canote) | 101 comments With a movie adaptation coming to theatres on October 26th, we kick-off David Mitchell's Cloud Atlas, check in with the folks over on Goodreads, and Tom shows off some pervy pulp fiction covers!

P. Aaron Potter (PAaronPotter) | 585 comments I would pay good money...well, okay, mediocre money...to see Tom go Gangnam Style.

Kim | 477 comments Tom has Bodies Are Where You Find Them? My Pulp Fiction book club is reading that this month but it's so hard to find a reasonably priced copy.

Probably pre-recorded too long in advance.

Brandon Zarzyczny (BigZ7337) | 5 comments Hm, I wonder if it'd be better to read it before seeing the movie, or after. Usually I don't like to spoil movies if I haven't already read the book, but for something as potentially confusing as Cloud Atlas, it might be a boon to have read it before seeing it.

Also, I can't believe that the kindle version is actually 3 dollars more expensive than the paperback version (the only physical option on Amazon). If I do read it, I think I'll be either torrenting it or borrowing it from the library.

Cloud Atlas is not confusing in the way Primer is confusing. It's more like Babel, so no need to read the book beforehand to keep up with the movie.

Ezra Farber | 26 comments I'm here to stick up for Eye in the Sky. Really cool book, and Becca, it totally couldn't be called "pervy pulp fiction." no worries, though. Tom, I love the cover on that edition! And I love that smell of those books.

I also thought it would be cute if one of you read notes off an ipad and the other read off an old-looking scroll!

Ronan O'Driscoll | 13 comments Great show and great book choice! Here's a funny blog where they just show dodgy sci-fi and fantasy covers: http://www.goodshowsir.co.uk/

Apologies if its been mentioned in another thread.

'Eye in the Sky' definitely doesn't fall into the pervy cover category, its a book I really enjoyed when I read it. I was referring to such classics as "Naked on Roller Skates" and "Martian Sexpot."
