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.

Mar 7, 2017

This episode we tackle the genre of...wait? What do you mean there’s no genre? We have to read things that aren’t for the book club?! I guess somehow we have time to consume other media outside of our book club picks! If you’re curious about what we read/listen/watch/play when we’re not way outside of our comfort zone, then listen along for a run down of what we’ve been into since the beginning of the 2017.

We talk superhot sidekick guys in mystery tv shows, sharing the same haircut with friends, planes, trains, and automobiles, too much snow in Canada (or at least in Vancouver), and Jessi getting scared by her cat.
