Hands down my favorite book podcast

I love Amanda and Jenn. I love their recs. I love the way they read. They are a reader / librarian / bookseller’s dream!

My favorite podcast!

I love this podcast, it’s the only one I listen to. I’ve discovered so many great books this way that I never would’ve known about or tried. It completely changed my reading life for the better. I highly recommend this to all my bookish friends.

Best Show for Bookish People!

This show is great! Jenn and Amanda are really fun to listen to. They do a great job explaining books without giving too much away. Heck, even if I don’t need a book recommendation, it’s just fun to listen to what kinds of books and stories are out there! Highly recommend to anyone who loves to read.
