A Readers’ Advisory Podcast about becoming better library staff by reading every genre, whether we like them or not! 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.

Our genre this month (Religious Fiction) demands we take a look at what makes a book count as "religious fiction" (instead of just fiction about religion). Plus in our one hour and 48 minute episode, Meghan reads too many books (as usual), Amanda explains Sex Magicks, Matthew makes terrible jokes, and Anna fails to finish anything. BIG spoiler for the graphic novel Therefore, Repent! by Jim Munroe and Salgood Sam.

Your Hosts This Episode

Anna Ferri | Meghan Whyte | Matthew Murray | Amanda Wanner



Did Not Finish:

Other Titles We Mentioned



  • Do Amish write Amish Romance novels?
  • Is Wiccansploitation a thing?
  • Doesn’t Matthew make just the worst jokes ever!?! (Okay, the Belieber one was pretty good.)
  • What makes a book “religious” fiction?
  • What is your favourite Satanist book?
