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.

It’s our Best of 2018 episode! Of course, these are not necessarily the best things published in 2018, but instead the best things we read for the podcast (including everything from Family Sagas to Nature/Outdoors Non-Fiction) and the best we read of everything else. Join us for our #libfaves18!

[Sorry this is a bit late coming out, Matthew had a terrible bout of food poisoning.]

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.
