Great podcast for book lovers!
I love the blogs written by these ladies and so far their recommendations have been great. I look forward to the next podcast!
Perfect for book lovers
Nicole and Gayle have a great rapport and their knowledge of what's new and upcoming in the book world is amazing. They'll definitely help you find your next favorite read. Plus, they're funny- which is what really counts!
updating - such a great find
Updating: It's official - this is more accessible and more useful than the NYT Book Review. Am I the only one who cannot find an opinion in most of the NYT book reviews? The hosts of this podcast are clear about their picks and very entertaining. One idea: part of a podcast dedicated to books you started but did not finish (perhaps already done?) - maybe part of the mid-year report.
Thoughtful reviews by a pair of warm, engaged readers. Perfect for busy people who are looking for intelligent reads. Recommendations are diverse and down-to-earth- love it !
