Interesting Conversation About Diverse Books
Scott and Jenny and a guest each choose three books they've been reading lately and tell us all about them. Scott and Jenny have wide ranging and diverse reading taste which makes for interesting conversation which is leaves me with at least a couple of new books to look for every time I listen. They also have guests with wide ranging interests which adds another layer of book diversity to the conversation. Altogether interesting and enjoyable.
Comfort Food For Your Ears
Great podcast for book lovers. Jenny and Scott are a breath of fresh air in the snark filled universe of the internet. No drama, no hate, just a couple of book lovers and assorted guests talking about what they've been reading. They don't limit the show to any particular genres, so you can get a wide variety of book suggestions. Good stuff!
Smart book talk
I like the casual conversation around books. I also like that every book they read isn't new. It gives me a much wider range to select a read. Great show.
