Lee's recommendation proves that loving books and loving TV are not mutually exclusive: He recommends "Seinfeldia" by Jennifer Keishin Armstrong.

"It's just absolutely laugh-out-loud funny. It's a great history of 'Seinfeld' from its inception all the way through to its influence over American culture," Lee said.

Even if you're not a die-hard fan, Lee said, the book still has fascinating insights into how TV shows in general are written and produced.
