    This episode we’re discussing the dreaded Did Not Finish! We talk about why we don’t finish books, specific titles we didn’t finish, why not finishing books can be good, what “finishing” a book even means, how you “finish” a cross-media property, and returning to books we stopped reading. Plus: Speedrunning books!

    Books We Did Not Finish Reading
    The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand Little Women by Louisa May Alcott The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien Rivendale (Wikipedia) Shelob (Wikipedia) A Walking Song The Return of the King by J.R.R. Tolkien Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov “Lolita, light of my life, fire of my loins. My sin, my soul. Lo-lee-ta: the tip of the tongue taking a trip of three steps down the palate to tap, at three, on the teeth. Lo. Lee. Ta.
    She was Lo, plain Lo, in the morning, standing four feet ten in one sock. She was Lola in slacks. She was Dolly at school. She was Dolores on the dotted line. But in my arms she was always Lolita.
    Did she have a precursor? She did, indeed she did. In point of fact, there might have been no Lolita at all had I not loved, one summer, an initial girl-child. In a princedom by the sea. Oh when? About as many years before Lolita was born as my age was that summer. You can always count on a murderer for a fancy prose style.
    Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, exhibit number one is what the seraphs, the misinformed, simple, noble-winged seraphs, envied.

Like sitting in on a knowledgeable book club

After listening for a year, I have really enjoyed the open discussion that often can vary in perspective. Adds to the quality of the experience with these librarians who are in different areas but share a clear love of books and literature.

-Kenneth Wade- ,

One of the Best Bookish Podcasts

I absolutely adore this podcast! It brings me such joy to see a new episode show up in my feed. The hosts are so intelligent and funny and they always cover interesting books, video games, etc. I can’t recommend this podcast enough :)

CallerofStorms ,

Librarians FTW!

Long time listener, I’m just bad a ratings/reviews. That being said, I’ve really enjoyed how this podcast has evolved over the 2+ years. As a librarian, it’s nice to hear recommendations and ideas from an outside group. Keep up the great work!
