If you don’t know what to read next, listen to this informative and thoughtful podcast

I am so happy to have found out about this podcast! It is during the time of quarantine where I have been devouring books and I no longer have to do all the research to figure out what to read next. Jennifer does an excellent job of informing the listener about the book without being revealing. She has piqued my interest on several books and her breadth is impressive, typically covering 5 books per podcast. I also love her literary happenings as it is a helpful way to stay informed of what is going on in the world outside of my four walls.

Informative, We--Organized Book Podcast

As an adult who recently became visually impaired, I have become
increasingly reliant upon podcasts to learn about new titles and
backlist books. I am impressed at how well-organized these episodes are.
They always include a segment on interesting news in the book world and
then Jennifer talks about several books, often new releases. She introduces
listeners to each book in sufficient detail without giving away the entire plot.
She also ahares her opinion about each title, which is helpful. I have learned
about a few new releases that I may select for a book group that I co-moderate.
There is a decidedly California flavor to her speech which is enjoyable to listen to. Not
being acquainted with raising chickens, I am a little puzzled by this practice but
it is interesting. I also appreciate the concise length of each episode, lasting
maybe 20 minutes or so. Give it a try. Thanks, Michelle

Like the best book club ever!

Want to have the experience of a fantastic book club without having to organize one? Try this podcast. I laugh about chicken news, learn publishing news and literary history, and always come away with a new list of books I want to read.
