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.

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!
