Hello All-- I know there is a lot online about how to prepare for law school and what to read, but I wanted to find out if anyone had any other suggestions? What are some good books worth the cost and time to read that will help in law school? Let me know your thoughts!

0L prep is pretty useless. Don't read any E&Es or hornbooks, and Getting to Maybe probably won't make a ton of sense before you have some knowledge to back it up. My advice would be to play video games, read books, and have sex.

Find some books that are slow, heavy reads. Read them and write up a summary of what happened in the book and what it meant to each of the characters from their point of view. At least it'll get you used to some of the reading and trying to pull the nuance out. Otherwise, read a lot and relax as much as you can. Learning law is a lot like farming, there is always something you should be doing.
