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 talk video games! We discuss taxonomies of birds, when is a game not a game, defining soup and sandwich, and the gamification of everything. Plus: We really indicate our ages by mentioning our first exposure to video games.
