Hi all —

I wanted to bump this thread last year for anyone (including me) updating
their syllabi / reading lists for this spring.

tl;dr: if you put the ISBN number of an "internet studies" book you
recommend (yours or anyone else's) in the this google form
it will automatically pull in other information from the Google Books API
into the public spreadsheet backend
