Season 2, Episode 4: We are Terrible Teases + a New Belly Up to the Book Bar

Kaytee and Meredith are back in your earbuds with strong opinions and bookish concoctions!

You’ll hear a “bookish moment of the week” from each host, and we are TEASES this week. We both have books that we cannot wait to talk about… but we’re not telling you what they are!

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! You’ve got just a few days left before this code expires, so get on it!

Moving forward, we discuss our current reads for the week. We are mostly GLOWING about our books this week, and we have lots of words about each of them.

We’ve got an update for you on our Slow But Steady reads as well, and we’ve loved having you chime in for what you’re reading for this challenge. Today, we’re also rethinking what Slow But Steady means in terms of content.

For our deep dive, we are discussing book clubs. All the different kinds of book clubs there are. How we feel about them personally. What we enjoy about the idea of book clubs. And some other weird tangents. What are your thoughts on book clubs?

Finally, this week, we finish the episode by Bellying Up to the Book Bar! Our drinking buddy this week is Angie Dawson, and we have LOTS of titles to throw her way. The show notes for this episode are bananas, friends. B-A-N-A-N-A-S.

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!
