    HERsay Podcast x Barnes & Noble April Book Picks

    April can feel like the longest month of the year - we’re so, so close to Spring, but winter just keeps coming back, and coming back for more. And where can people relate to this more than at the site of this month’s HERsay Podcast x Barnes & Noble Book Picks episode recording - Buffalo NY! Each month, the HERsay Podcast selects the genres, and a bookseller from Barnes & Noble somewhere in the country selects titles from their vast knowledge of books available in all genres. They know better than anyone else what’s new and exciting on their shelves, the hidden gems, the enduring favorites - choosing for us the books they think women will love this month. Books purchased from hersaypodcast.com in April go to Buffalo City Mission’s Women and Children’s Shelter - working to end the root causes of poverty and homelessness in Buffalo. Listen now!

    Halloween is one of our favorite times of the year. When else is it perfectly acceptable - in fact, encouraged - to get dressed up and become a totally different person AND to eat loads of candy? So, too, with books this season. We can be transported to eerie and tantalizing locales, seek out thrills and chills, all while in the safety and coziness of our favorite reading nooks. With this in mind, this month we’ve tapped one of our favorite guests, Terri Rogers, from Barnes & Noble in Webster, NY, to help us find just the right books for women, to help get us into the haunted Halloween Spirit.
