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.

Oct 15, 2019

This episode we’re discussing the topics of Suspending Your Disbelief and Trick or Treaters’ Advisory (e.g. Halloween costumes)! We discuss how we read realistic fiction differently from more outlandish fiction, characters acting out of character, super selfish teenagers, and how many costume elements we have in our closets. Plus: We’re confused by people who choose not to read fiction!

You can download the podcast directly, find it on Libsyn, or get it through iTunes, Stitcher, Google Play, Spotify, or your favourite podcast delivery system.
