Amazon Book Review Podcast

I enjoy listening and have purchased a few of the recommendations.
However, the group needs to stop talking over each other. I have missed
hearing titles of books because of this.

Good podcast, one recommendation

Try not to talk at the same time, particularly when naming the title. I couldn’t understand it because one of you expressed approval before the other finished stated the title

Great podcast!

Please add the show notes. I listen while walking and don’t want to have to playback and write down later.
