Episode 16: Riveting reads + how the holidays change our reading habits
This week we’re talking brand new titles, some oldies but goodies and a few bookish surprises.
You’ll hear a “bookish moment of the week” from each of us: a brand new release finally in hand, and a bookish Christmas tradition.
Next, we tackle what we are currently reading, a few brand new releases as well as a bunch of goodness from the back list.
This week we spend some time discussing how our reading habits change during the holidays, both in amount and substance.
As always, we finish up with A Book (yep, capitalized) that we’d like to press into every reader’s hands: a rich-family inheritance drama, and a time-travel-esque (no actual time travel involved) book that surprised me.
