Episode 41: Murderous Mysteries + Our Bookish Mentors

Meredith and Kaytee are excited to be chatting this week about all things bookish and books!

Important announcement this week: we have a great discount code to share with you from The Bookshelf Thomasville! Now through June 30th, you can get anything on their website for 10% off using the code CURRENTLYREADING (wow!!!) This would be a great time to pick up a Shelf Subscription for yourself or others!

You’ll hear a “bookish moment of the week” from each of us: an fun online printable for summer reading and a new Etsy store find.

Next, we discuss our current reads for the week. We’ve got some great mysteries for you Penny pushers, and some other fun fiction for you and your kids.

For our deep dive this week, we are chatting about our reading mentors: the women (and a few men) who shaped our reading lives and what they taught us about books and reading.

As always, we finish up with A Book (yep, capitalized) that we’d like to press into every reader’s hands. This weeks’s “presses” are a classic perfect for spring/summer reading and a non-fiction pick that every woman should read.

As per usual, 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!
