Season 2, Episode 14: Reading for Mental Health + Guest Host Lori Lynn Tucker

My dear friend, Lori Lynn Tucker.

My dear friend, Lori Lynn Tucker.

Kaytee is recording with a guest host this week as Meredith is traveling, and I think you’ll really enjoy hearing from her!

You’ll hear a “bookish moment of the week” from each of us: an author event with a tiny sidekick, and a special bookish gift from a friend.

Next, we discuss our current reads for the week. This week’s choices have romance, non-fiction, and historical fiction novels!

We’ll move on to a short Slow But Steady update from each of us, as well as a couple listener updates

For our deep dive this week, we are taking a peek at Lori Lynn’s reading life, and the ways she uses reading to balance her mental health. It’s a really interesting conversation about how reading looks different for each of us.

Finally, this week, we are Pressing Books Into Your Hands. We’ve both brought a non-fiction pick this week, and they are certain to spark conversations!

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! *Please note that all book titles linked above are Amazon affiliate links. Your cost is the same, but a small portion of your purchase will come back to us to help offset the costs of the show. Thanks for your support!*
