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.

Jan 19, 2021

This episode we’re talking about Our Reading Resolutions and Intentions for 2021! We discuss failing our reading resolutions from 2020, reading in a pandemic, reading for fun, reading for work, reading (or not reading) books given to us as gifts, and how we deal with To Read lists. Plus: Matthew’s appalling reading plans for 2021.

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