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 talking about the concept of mass promotional book clubs! Whether it’s One City, One Read, Canada Reads, or Oprah’s book club, listen to us discuss if we read book club books, the celebrity book club we wish existed, and the idea of “the book club book.”

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.
