    Reading Envy 202: Jacket Flap with Chris and Emily of the Book Cougars

    Reading Envy 202: Jacket Flap with Chris and Emily of the Book Cougars

    Chris and Emily, known fondly as Book Cougars, join me to discuss books we've read and liked recently. We address the controversy of one of the books selected, new books by well-loved authors, and authors that we're just discovering (and whose back files we need to read.) Links to Book Cougars are included at the end of the shownotes so check out their podcast too.

    The Reading Envy Pub is crammed full of people who want to share their recent projects, where they go for book ideas, and more.

    Reading Envy 198: Mood Reading with Robin Gustafson

    Jenny hosts a new guest in the Reading Envy Pub and we chat mood reading, new releases, the line between gothic and horror, and more. Robin talks about a book club she's been in that's older than a typical college student, and because we are both academic librarians facing reopening in a pandemic, we talk a little baseball.

Books!

I enjoy the wide variety of guests. I’ve got many good book recommendations over the years from Jenny and guests. Always interesting!

Real readers and real books.

Love the variety of books and readers that Jenny showcases. 😀

How not to do a podcast!

Do these ladies have any idea that every background noise including doors closing can be heard on their podcast? Distracting and unprofessional.
