Perfect podcast for book addicts
I know there are only three episodes so far, but Michelle & Isaac (with help from a friend in Episode Three) have already lengthened my book list by quite a bit. And it really helps that so little of their reading crosses over with mine. Can't wait for the next one!
This will make you want to read
I'm really enjoying this new podcast. I love the banter, and the way the personal is revealed in reading tastes. My reading list is getting longer and longer as I listen to each episode. I look forward to seeing how this show evolves!
Addictive Book Talk
