A very exciting set of two books from Taschen:
I "read" (there are mostly pictures) the 50s one and I loved the cover, format (it's huge!) and the retro stereotypes (swimsuits with corsets incorporated for women, meat for your men)
I can't wait to start The Sixties. Meanwhile, preview here.
I have a GoodReads profile here, if you want to be "book friends"!
Still in America, the four-part (PBS of course) series called America in Primetime seemed very exotic to me. I knew only few of the series depicted (usually the recent ones), so the rest was quite exciting & strange.
I'm going to have to sample some (like Freaks & Geeks, it looks awesome!)
