What is Josh Todd reading?

Josh tweeted, "Finished Spillover now reading The Racketeer, Grisham."

 He also tweeted last week regarding Spillover, "Almost done with Spillover what I've learned: don't f@#* with bats, monkeys, or birds. HIV started in 1908 and H5N1 possible next pandemic."

Thanks, Josh!

Josh Radnor

Josh Radnor is an actor, writer and director. You most likely know him as Ted Mosby from the funny CBS series "How I Met Your Mother" (one of my favorite shows!). Josh has also written and directed two films: happythankyoumoreplease and most recently, Liberal Arts.

What book does Josh Radnor recommend?

Josh recently tweeted, "You don’t have to be a youthful young person to enjoy my friend ’s funny/sad/great book “33 Minutes.” I’m not and I did."

Book Description from Amazon.com:
"Sam Lewis is going to get his butt kicked in exactly thirty-three minutes. He knows this because yesterday his former best friend Morgan Sturtz told him, to his face and with three witnesses nearby, “I am totally going to kick your butt tomorrow at recess.” All that’s standing between Sam and this unfortunate butt-kicking is the last few minutes of social studies and his lunch period. But how did Sam and Morgan end up here? How did this happen just a few months after TAMADE (The Absolutely Most Amazing Day Ever), when they became the greatest Alien Wars video game team in the history of great Alien Wars teams? And once the clock ticks down, will Morgan actually act on his threat? Told with equal parts laugh-out-loud humor and achingly real emotional truth, 33 Minutes shows how even the best of friendships can change forever."
