Great interviews and book recommendations!

I look forward to listening to this podcast every week! Pamela Paul’s interviews with authors are excellent—great questions, engaging and different book choices. And I always love learning what the NYT book critics are reading. Lots of great book inspiration, especially when I’m deciding what to read next.

Picking the best memoir

Thank you for this topic, especially the recommendation of Wave which I’ve just finished and loved. I look forward to seeing the whole list.

Your podcast is one of my favorites—great author interviews.
