    Bookselling (Finale) with Nicole Brinkley & Ashley Poston (4.8)

    Bookselling (Finale) with Nicole Brinkley & Ashley Poston (4.8)

    It's our finale! We're ending things the way we began: with New York Times bestselling author Ashley Poston chatting with host Nicole Brinkley about all things bookselling. What's the best part of being a bookseller? What are some of the hardest? How can booksellers and other book lovers avoid burnout in an industry where so much of the pressure is put upon us by us—and, wait, what was that about wet noodle necromancers?

    Thank you to everybody for listening for the past two years: it's been an absolute treat to introduce you to so many booksellers and so many creators. Keep supporting your favorite independent bookstore. Much love. xo

    Apologies for the delay in upload this week: missing files and a chronic pain flare-up from host Nicole kept us delayed by two days, but we're back on it!

    Time Travel with Melissa Taylor & Jodi Taylor (4.5)

    Time travel? Check. Tea debates? Check. Henry VIII's codpiece? Well, yes. There's few things more joyous than listening to an independent bookseller hit it off with one of their favorite authors and spend the whole episode laughing. This week, listen in as Melissa Taylor from E. Shaver Booksellers in Georgia talks to author Jodi Taylor about her writing and all things to do with British history, with many funny anecdotes along the way.

    This is our mid-season hiatus as host Nicole takes a little vacation to celebrate her 30th birthday, but we'll be back in early November. See you then!

    It's Banned Books Week. You might be aware that across the country there's been a spate of challenges and bans against books that make some people  uncomfortable. Many of these books focus on the marginalized experiences of queer and BIPOC characters and writers, especially in books for kids.

    In this week's Misshelved, settle in as Bettie's Pages owner Nicole Lintemuth talks with New York Times bestselling author (and routinely banned) Kelly Yang about banned books and why they both love kidlit.
