So, it's been a little over a week now since the mid-season finale of Mad Men (what's with these mid-season finales anyway?! Such a tease!) I've actually opted to wait and binge-watch this first half of the final season, so I haven't seen any new episodes in full yet and have been cautious surfing online, dodging spoilers left and right.

For those of you who did watch in real time and are already going through withdrawal from the 1960s set drama, we've got just the thing for you: a list of books and films that were written and created in the 1960s, were inspired by the 1960s, and / or have been featured or referenced on the show themselves! We call it If You Like Mad Men... and here is a sampling (in no particular order):

These staff picks should keep you busy during the year long wait for the finale to the final season of Mad Men in 2015, or at the very least you'll have more options for some summer beach reads and lazy Sunday movie watching!

What are some of your favorite books and films from the 1960s? Let us know in the comments!
