Episode 2: Book Metaphors and Page-Turning Novels
Kaytee and Meredith are back in your earbuds for more bookish chat.
You’ll hear a “bookish moment of the week” from each of us – Meredith's book subscription box and Kaytee's rainbow shelf. Next, we'll chat about a few of the books we’ve finished reading lately. Meredith's famous (infamous?) book metaphors make their first podcast appearance in this episode. Broccoli, anyone?
Next, we do a mini-deep-dive into some of the best audiobooks to get you started if you're new to the medium, and then we move onto what’s up next on the TBR pile.
We finish up with two books that are real page-turners, perfect for end of summer beach reading.
