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.

Jun 18, 2019

This month we’re discussing Which Book Should We Read? Once a year we pick one title that we all read and discuss. This year we each suggest one title and are asking you to vote for which one we’ll read.

Also discussed: Books & Beverages library displays, The Podcaster’s Dilemma, poetry clocks, touching, smelling, and tasting podcasts, and a fantasy novel that’s a collection of found and fragmentary historical documents.

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