The History of Eclectic Readers
The Eclectic Readers started in 2009 as an IRL book club. In 2015, four of us in the book club thought we'd give podcasting a try and have been going strong ever since! In each monthly book club episode, we base our book choice on that month's IRL book club pick.

Truly eclectic

Interesting conversation that has exposed me to a variety of books that I likely wouldn’t have known about.

They sound bored

Very sad to come on and hear a podcast on books and for them to sound so lackluster.

Truly Eclectic

Always enjoy the conversation on the Eclectic Readers podcast. One of my favorite reading podcasts, too. Love that they truly go out of their way to avoid sticking to any one market or genre.
