HHenny ,

So fun to read and listen!

I’ve been thoroughly enjoying adding genres and writers to my reading repertoire AND listening to Traci and her guests talk about reading in general and specific books. My “to read” list is growing and growing. I had to go out and get my hands on a copy of The Ensemble after hearing Aja Gabel talk about If You Leave Me. It was wonderful. Keep up the great work, Traci! (Sometimes the recording is a bit quiet. Any way to make it louder?)

Hollie Lawder ,

Great podcast

Love this podcast! The format is so enjoyable, and my TBR list grows each episode. I also love to hear the guest discuss their favs!! Traci is such a great host & I literally feel like I’m listening to friends chat about books.

LizzELou1983 ,

Fantastic

I learned about The Stacks when Tawny of Yo Is This Racist was on and I am hooked! I love the format of getting to know the reviewer first before diving into the book, so you can assess how their feelings on the book may differ from your own. My TBR pile is growing exponentially and I love your focus on women authors, especially women of colour.
