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.

May 21, 2019

This episode we talk about Books That Changed Our Lives and Books That Haunt Us. We talk about comics, cooking, problematic faves, what caused us to study what we did in school, and more!

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