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.

Mar 16, 2021

It’s our 5th anniversary episode and this time we’re discussing Bad Book Reading Habits! Sticky notes, bookmarks, tagging and tracking, borrowing more library books than we can read, books on display in video calls, reading books out of order, throwing books in the garbage, and more! Plus: Which host is a book goblin? (The answer may surprise you.)

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

Since 2020, we’ve been sharing lists of books by authors of colour for every new genre we read - and with our non-genre episodes, sharing lists for the genres we covered in our early episodes. The early episode we’re creating a booklist for this month is Episode 009: Aboriginal / Indigenous / First Nations.
