Episode 19: Book Armadillos + Special Guest Host Scott Monday

Meredith is holding down the fort this week while Kaytee travels, so her brother, Scott Monday is serving as our special guest host!

You’ll hear a “bookish moment of the week” from each host: a Christmas classic that brought the family together and an amazing 2018 reading realization.

Next, Meredith and Scott tackle what they are currently reading, and this week will make our non-fiction lovers’ hearts just sing as it’s chock-full of great NF titles.

This week’s deep dive is about Scott’s reading life and his weird foibles and quirks. I have a feeling you all are going to have serious WORDS about this! We can’t wait for you to chime in.

As always, we finish up with A Book (yep, capitalized) that we’d like to press into every reader’s hands: a data-nerd’s dream book and a book that belongs on every family’s shelves.

As always, 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!
