    March Reading! S1 Ep10

    We recorded this episode in Bookish's Bakery District location during Spring Break in Arkansas! Jen might have been a little sunburned, and we sure hope you all have had time during the past month to soak up some Vitamin D! (Preferably while reading!)

    Episode 09 -- February Reading

    Episode 09 -- February Reading

    Cold winter days are perfect reading days! Here are our first reads of 2021, some a tad less relevant at the time of this posting than they were at the beginning of the year. We are not going to win any awards for timeliness in this podcast, but we might for these solid recommendations!

    Episode 08 -- January Reading

    We’re rolling into 2021 at a slower pace than we expected! Join us as we talk about our January reading and life stuff — including Jen’s experience with Covid.

    We’re back with our October reads and a little celebration after a long few days of watching our democracy at work. Disclaimer: We aren’t political scientists, but we are a little bit political! Hope you enjoy our discussion and add some treasures to your TBR list.

Great podcast by great people

Good podcast about books with a little snippet review. Also love going to the store where you’re going to get excellent help and suggestions. If you’re ever in Ft. Smith, definitely give Bookish a visit!

This 5 stars is the truth!!!

Thanks for giving me great reading ideas! Many of the books/authors I would never find on my own. You haven't led me astray yet.

Love The Bookish Life!

Jen and Sara have fun and informative book talks-often about books that had escaped my notice but that inevitably end up on my TBR list after I listen to their synopsis. Great fun to listen to!
