Feb 21, 2017

This episode we tackle (and get distracted repeatedly from) the genre of Non-Fiction Romance, Relationships, and Dating books. We discuss what’s it like reading a book about dating when you’re in a committed relationship, the difficulties of finding books about alternative relationships, and whether or not we’d date people who hate reading. Plus! A rant about the lack of diversity in the publishing industry. 

Welcome to all of our new listeners from Bustle!
