Episode 13: Get Out Your Umbrella, It’s Raining Non-fiction!
Meredith and Kaytee are back in your earbuds to chat Non-Fiction and some other really wonderful titles!
You’ll hear a “bookish moment of the week” from each of us: a bookish candle and IRL friendships that are reading more.
Next, we tackle what we are currently reading, just two titles from each of us so we have time to talk about 50 thousand additional books!
Our deep-dive this week centers on some of our favorite non-fiction genres! We throw a whole metric crap-ton of titles at you to get you started in the non-fiction world, if that seems to be a place that you’re lacking. Every one of these titles have been vetted by one or both of us (along with many others that we’ve mentioned in past episodes), and we are all about you picking them up!
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 some beautiful fiction as well as a great and FUN contemporary mystery.
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!
