I live nowhere near Topeka.

I work in a small bookstore in New York state and just discovered your podcast. I love it. It's already given me many ideas for new books to order in and older titles to recommend.

Fun podcast about books

Great!

Good Intentions

While this podcast does have interesting guests, the moderators need some work. On many podcasts Thad (sp.?) introduces the podcast topic and then disappears for the rest of the time. He, however, is competent. "Lissa", or whatever her name is, adds NOTHING to the podcasts other than giggling, interrupting guests, or making inane comments. Whoever hired her apparently interviewed no one else.
