QuestionOne of the things I've always found incredibly hot about Alex is that she has A People's History of the United States by Howard Zinn on her shelf. I used to believe it was just some wishful thinking on my part, but those high res caps are my evidence, so thank you. Answer

Adding that to the bookshelf list :) It seems like the creative minds behind the show try to give some personality to the book choices they make for each character. The books seem to be suited to each person, and I don’t think it’s a consequence. I hope they keep it up for S2! 

In case you have been living under a rock - the official season 2 teaser trailer. 

I like how they purposely left out Alex. What a tease.

QuestionMaybe someone can ID these other books on Alex's shelf: something about Body Mind, a Leon Uris novel, a distinct red and black striped dust jacket, and a giant pink book with the word LOVE on it? Answer

Someone has picked out a few already, but I’m going to try and save some for the DVD rewatch :)

QuestionHi! Love this tumblr. I am wondering if anyone has recognized some of the books on Alex's bookshelf in the flashback where she is at the party talking to Fahri? Thanks! Answer

Thanks!

I kind of tried doing this, but it’s difficult since the Netflix stream is so not HD enough to pick out the titles, unless you are already familiar with the book/know what it looks like to pick it out from the shelf. But if anyone spots anything, feel free to submit.

More reason to get the blurays/DVDs and rewatch!

I don’t live in NY so I cannot partake in this and am totally sad about it, but if you live in NYC… PLEASE GO! Who knows, they might choose something totally obscure from this tumblr as a question !! Study up and time to re-re-re-marathon!
