Season 2, Episode 3: Tales from a Used Bookstore + Guest Host Jessica Howard
Kaytee is chatting with her bookish friend, Jessica Howard, this week while Meredith celebrates her birthday!
You’ll hear a “bookish moment of the week” from each host: a meta podcast moment in which Jess hears herself mentioned on the podcast, and a dentist/book overlap that will leave you scratching your head!
Next, we’ll remind you about our Bookshelf Thomasville coupon code for you: CURRENTLYLOVING will get you 10% off from our friends over there through the month of August! One more week for this fun code!
Moving forward, we discuss our current reads for the week. We’re stuffing some extra titles into this segment this week, because we just couldn’t help ourselves.
We’ve got an update for you on our Slow But Steady reads as well. We’re also shouting out a few readers and their own Slow But Steady reads. Have you told us about yours yet?
For our deep dive, Jessica and I chat about what it’s like to work at Bookmans in Tucson, AZ. She has lots of fun stories to share, some that make you go hmmm, and some interesting behind-the-scenes book review talk that you’ll love!
Finally, this week, we finish with The Book that we’d like to press into your hands, readers. We’ve got a favorite author that doesn’t get enough love and a Southern novel that’s anything but slow.
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!
