8 year Break!

So I haven’t listened to an episode in like 8 years...since before they had the intro music and sound effects. Love this show and feels just like catching up with an old friend. Like a fine wine just better with age!!

Great Books!

Great book pics—some I would never have picked up on my own but I loved them! I love their analysis of the texts, banter, and info! This podcast has enhanced my reading life immensely!

Great Content

Though I’m often late to discussions I enjoy the Goodreads group and the book picks.
