048: What do you read for National American Cheese Month?

Did you know it was National Book Month? And National Pickled Pepper Month?? And World Menopause Month??? October is wild, y'all. We decided to combine National Book Month with some of the others and give you reading material to celebrate whatever holiday month you prefer! Except picked peppers -- we forgot books for that one, sorry.
