Great podcast that recaptures the lost love of reading!
Love hearing Dr. Nichols discuss greaet books. It reminds me of my days sitting in his classes at LBC.
An insightful podcast that I really loved. Stephen Nichols is a treasure trove of knowledge and a pleasure to listen to. I know I will be blessed by future episodes.
