Jam-packed with book recommendations from me and listeners as well as reading tips and tricks (library holds, abandoning books, respecting kids’ reading preferences, keeping track of what you’ve read, e-reading thoughts) and some insider information, this episode is for all the book lovers out there!

Just a note that I’ve also moved to a biweekly episode format in order to continue the show regularly through the school year!
