Episode 42: Audiobooks for your Summer Road Trip + The Reading Life of Guest Host Heather Chollar
Kaytee has a special guest co-host joining her this week, and I can’t wait to share her with you. You’ve heard me mention “my Heather” many times on the podcast, and today she’s recording with me to bring you a very special episode.
Continuing Important announcement: 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: a trip to a favorite indie bookstore and library cards for very excited kiddos.
Next, we discuss our current reads for the week. Heather prepared like a boss and brings you a perfect audiobook listen no matter who you are road tripping with this summer. Kaytee has some non-fiction and a (perhaps overly?) hyped sequel to discuss.
For our deep dive this week, I’m talking to Heather about her reading life, including some of the things that you listeners have been wondering about our (M&K’s reading life) in relation to motherhood, and finding time to read with kids around.
As always, we finish up with A Book (yep, capitalized) that we’d like to press into every reader’s hands. We’ve got a children’s classic that should be read by readers of every age and a memoir that will make you cry and laugh so hard you may pee yourself.
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!
