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.

Jul 4, 2017

In this 40 minute (short!) episode we try to define reading slumps and reading fatigue, talk about reading as a job, extol the wonders and magic of giving up on books, and discuss choosing what to read next. Plus: Matthew finds a way to complain about the comic book publishing industry (because of course he does).

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