Like a conversation with friends...

I love this podcast!
I love your voices, I love the energy, and I love the cadence of the show.
I appreciate that the reviews are honest, and that you don’t overhype the newest, “most popular” books like some other podcasts do. I’ve found several great older books because of you, that I’d never have read otherwise.
Listening to this show feels like having a conversation with a good friend. ❤️

Pros and Cons

I heard about the Readerly Report from another book podcast (can't remember which one.) I listen most weeks to this podcast. The pros: The episodes are two friends sharing about what they have read and are going to read. I enjoy hearing other people's conversations about books. Also, I have heard of some books to put on my TBR as a result of listening to the podcast.
Cons: There are many times in the podcast where nothing is being said. One host asks a question of the other host and then there is a silent pause before the other host answers. It seems very awkward. I don't know if this is a recording problem, or an editing problem, but it makes it seem like they aren't always listening to each other. The other con is that very often it seems like nothing is prepared ahead of time. Titles of books being currently read are forgotten, hosts don't know the authors for books they are talking about. Seems like there should be a bit more preparation even for a podcast that is built on friendly dialogue. I would give this podcast more stars if these things were improved!
