    QUESTIONS

    1. I love fantasy & science fiction and have read the genre for years, but it seems like all I can find is the Not Like Other Girls™ character. Unlike Other Girls she doesn’t like sewing or embroidery and would rather be sword fighting and is always getting in trouble for her unladylike behavior.

    My question is; Where are the stories about those other girls?

    I personally love sewing and I’m a quilter myself. I love working with fabric, it speaks to me. Are you going to go fight a dragon wearing nothing but a shift? How long are you going to survive a post-apocalyptic winter wearing jeans and a tee shirt? Who is creating the elaborate costumes for the time travelers?

    The closest books I’ve been able to find so far are The Backstagers graphic novels/books and the Behind the Scenes!! manga by Bisco Hatori.

    Thank you for your time!

    2. Hi ladies,

    I absolutely love the podcast and wanted to reach out with a request for a recommendation. Recently my (cis male) partner and I have decided that we are going to get married in the new year. We are both feminists, atheists, and working hard to decrease our consumerism and live in environmentally friendly ways, so we are avoiding the wedding industrial complex as much as possible and plan to marry at the town hall with our immediate families present. As a big reader, I often go to books during major life steps to seek advice and guidance, but I am not seeing myself represented in many books about marriage. I have previously read Committed by Elizabeth Gilbert and really loved that book, and I am looking for something similar that is a thoughtful and positive nonfiction book on marriage that may offer advice and insight to those who are genuinely working to have an equal and (apparently) kind of radical partnership that isn’t defined by the trappings of a wedding or organized religion. Your recommendations would be amazing!

    Thank you so much,

    -Grace

    3. My sister Ruth is a chef/caterer. She has read EVERY memoir, biography, history, technical and cookbook known to the universe. What she hasn’t read is any Fiction that immerses food within the story. Please don’t go for the obvious choices: Danler, Hesser, Reichl, etc. What I’m looking for is a variety of genres/authors that have great food descriptions as part of the story. Literary Fiction a plus and something crazy like SciFi can be fun too. Take your best shot! Grazzi!

    4. I have been adamant for years that I don’t like romance books. They are too mushy and are not for me. Then I somehow was talked into reading Red, White, and Royal Blue. And now I like romances (??) *sigh* Obviously I need help and direction. LGBT is a major plus but not required. I’ve tried the Kiss Quotient and did not like it at all. When I first came out I read Sing You Home. It was ok but not great. I really like the wit and character building in RWRB. Please help.

    Thanks!!

    5. Hello! I’m a teenager who’s very confused about a lot of things. Some examples are why people like mushrooms, how the current political climate came to be, and figuring out what crowds I identify with.

    At the moment, I’m looking for some books that offer different perspectives, or some books that would

Ok so I literally just discovered you today and I‘m in love with this podcast! I love how you two discuss the books in a deeper way and how your personal reading experience just grows into the books you recomment. Also this podcasts makes me dive into genres and books I never thought I’d enjoy. My favorite book podcast for sure!
