Love each new episode!

Every time I listen, I toggle back and forth to Goodreads to add books on my TBR list!

Perfect Book Podcast

There aren’t enough consistent, good book podcasts that talk about books. Some are disguised as book podcasts, but they talk news. That’s not as fun. This feels a lot more like a book club. It’s great!

OlWiggum ,

A great new podcast!

Looking forward to hearing more!
