Episode 6: Backlist Gems and How DOES Kaytee Read So Darn Much?
Kaytee and Meredith return this week to chat about books with you! How do you feel about the backlist? We’re going there.
You’ll hear a “bookish moment of the week” from each of us: using books as a coping strategy and books that you’ve been meaning to read for more than decade…
We dive in to discussing 3 books each. These mostly take a trip down backlist lane, because only one is brand new and the rest are back in the catalog.
Next we get into every listener’s most-asked question: a brief overview of how in the /world/ Kaytee reads SO much while homeschooling all those children.
We finish up with A Book (yep, capitalized) that we’d like to put into every reader’s hands. We’ve got a book that will make your life better and a series that you have to push through the first book to get to the way better second and third books.
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!
