A list of every book (and movie) mentioned in MCTB2

I remember thinking that I would regret not writing down all of the book recommendations that I came across while reading MCTB2. Well, I realized I was able to write a web scraper that would grab all of them. I wrote that scraper today and wanted to share the list with everybody in case anybody finds it useful. 

This list has all the titles and the url for the chapter it was mentioned in. I think it should be fairly accurate, but it's possible that I missed something that should be included and/or included something that should have been left out.

Amazing job Michael !! 

In fact, it couldn't be more timely your contribution, as I have been working on Daniel's posts compilation and from them picking up his books recommendations. So your work will surely broaden the list. Thanks again!

Did you got the titles of the books just by capturing the words in italics?

Thanks Pepe! Yes, in essence it worked by getting the words in italics. I wrote something that would go from chapter to chapter finding all the italicized bits. That grabs too much though because some things that are in italics are just for emphasis and not actually books. So I also added the constraint that they must contain at least one capital letter. There were a few random sentences that made it through, so I just deleted those by hand. 

I also have a list that contains the context of each mention, but that was too long to post. If it would help you with your project, I would be happy to send it to you.

That was clever!

Those pointers you gave are more than enough for the compilation. So, I'lI change the name of the section from "Recommended Books" to something like "Recommended Suttas & Books", as there are plenty of them that I glossed over. Thanks again!

Sounds good Pepe! I made sure to use the term "mentioned" rather than "recommended" because I wasn't checking the context for every single item. I don't recall the book brining up any book in a negative light, but perhaps that just slipped my mind. Obviously, if you are going back to read the context of every mention, you won't have that problem anyway. Cheers!

Thanks for popping in, shargrol! Speaking of cyber dharma, I came across your compilation site earlier this year and really enjoyed it. Just thought i'd take this chance to say thanks!

Thanks for putting that together Michael.
I'd resumed reading MCTB2 (online) and was curious about finding various referenced works but it seemed daunting ... this makes it a breeze.

Thanks for this! I was sitting around today thinking "man, he has so many good book recommendations in mctb2, it would be so nice to be able to have an index at the end with all those books," then I somehow felt drawn to browsing this forum after reading the book, then this post was one of the first I ran across. Feels pretty fortuitous to live in a time where there is so much great, easily accessible Dharma! Thanks so much!
