Ezra's Bookshelf


Hi, nice to see you there.

I made Ezra's Bookshelf to scratch my own itch. I was listening to The Ezra Klein Show and I wanted to see what books had been recommended on previous episodes. Lists already existed built with tools like Google Sheets and AirTable but none of them were up to date. The New York Times maintains a list but... paywalls. So I built this website.

When you click on a link that goes to bookshop.org, it is an affiliate link. I get a small kickback. More importantly, you are helping small bookstores exist in the wake of Jeff Bezos.

If you'd like to request a feature or express your existential dread, feel free to reach out.
