Episode 12: Choosing Your Next TBR
Episode 12 comes to you this week. And we’re here to talk TBR. The specifics of what drives us to choose the next book off the stack!
You’ll hear a “bookish moment of the week” from each of us: a group of online readers that saves the day and all about audiobook “stories.”
Next, we tackle what we are currently reading: some Capital W-Weird picks, some non-fiction, some YA. We’ve got a little taste of everything.
We take a mini-deep dive this week into the topic of TBR lists. How do readers in general choose what is To Be Read next? How do we, specifically, choose what to slot into that coveted position?
As always, we finish up with A Book (yep, capitalized) that we’d like to press into every reader’s hands. This week we have a perfect Christmas gift idea (and some wonderful accompaniments) as well as a beloved curmudgeon book for almost every reader on your list.
Time-stamped show notes are below with references to every book and resource we mentioned in this episode. If you’d like to listen first and not spoil the surprise, don’t scroll down!
