A Readers’ Advisory Podcast about becoming better library staff by reading books we hate! Every month we read books from a new, randomly picked genre; then on the podcast we discuss our reading choices, experiences, opinions, appeal factors, and other related topics as friends and library workers.

Nov 1, 2016

Just in time to miss Halloween, this episode has us reading Supernatural and Paranormal Non-fiction. And by “reading” we mean “not reading”, as several of us fail to finish any books. Thankfully, we can blame everything on gremlins. Plus wolfmen, ghosts, mermaids, dramatic readings, and special guests.

Questions

  • What colour of the rainbow did you cross over into Atlantis on?
  • What appeal factors for the paranormal/supernatural genre did we miss?
  • How could cataloguing be altered to make things more ‘findable’?
  • Can you draw our Guardian Gremlins for us?
