Each week, you'll get to know one reader based solely on her (or, on occasion, his) shelf--the books she/he reads, writes, or helps bring into the world. Occasionally, By Her Shelf will feature solo episodes from founder and podcast host Erica D. Hearns, topical episodes featuring By Her Shelf Contributors Alex and Christina, or other special bookish content.

    I have a confession to make: I only gave you 10 books that impacted me this year in my 12 Books of Christmas series because only 10 books stood out to me at the time. I'm happy to report that since I recorded the series, I've read two books that begged to be a part of the series. I sat down to record an episode highlight both of these recent reads, one of which became my favorite read of 2019. If you're still looking for the perfect read to bring in the new year with, maybe one of these books will be perfect for you.

    In this episode, I do something a little different from the previous 10 and share the books I still haven't finished, the book I still haven't started, and the books I'm having major FOMO over. I invite you to tell me what I should read (or finish) before the new year and tell you how your most impactful books of 2019 can be featured on the last episode of the series.

Here's to making Book 10 famous!

    Welcome to Day 9 of the 12 Books of Christmas Series on the By Her Shelf Podcast! I'm posting a short episode each day featuring one book that's impacted me this year.

    In this episode, I share about a book written by someone who used to run a big Christian women's conference that looks at an aspect of faith we don't always consider. This book met me in a really difficult season and helped to shift my perspective and grow my understanding of faith at a critical point in my life. I hope you enjoy my review of Book 9!

Great concept and great style!

Love the concept of this show. And there’s a really cool style to the interviews. It feels both professional - like I’m getting a lot of out it, but also down to Earth and comfortable. Great show!
