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.

This episode we’re discussing “What is a Book?” Is it our most self-indulgent episode yet? We don’t know, but we do know that the conversation gets pretty existential at times and we talk about what “reading” means, whether something stapled can be a book, and the ephemeral nature of everything.

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