It's ok...

I listen to this podcast and it's ok. I don't like the selection of books because even though I'm only 12 I'm a very advanced reader. This podcast has no books I know, and it's really fun to listen to podcasts about books you like. Although the episodes about books I don't know can be fun too, because since I'm a fast reader it's really hard to find a book I'll like. But this podcast spoils the book! I really wish there was a book club podcast for kids, with books on it that are new, but also some classics, such as Little Women and Anne of Green Gables. Maybe I should start a podcast when I'm older! All in all, I do listen to this podcast because it's the best kids book club podcast I can find, but I really don't love it
