A bibliophile’s bite-sized podcast dream

I adore this podcast where I can find my next great read in a short amount of time. Modern Mrs. Darcy (Anne Bogel) NEVER disappoints, and I find fantastic books I may not have selected for myself.

SO. GOOD.

I’m obsessed with this podcast. Anne’s voice, the way she tells me about a book, and the books themselves make me so happy. It brings me comfort and happiness and I love it.
