No review today, my dears. Just an update and some positive, fun news. No, it’s not about my hair which is a hot mess, but I’m owning growing in the gray and, more importantly, I’m happy and healthy.
You may have noticed, from time to time I mention and post links to a podcast I appear on called Sarah’s Book Shelves Live. Well, it seems people like hearing me talk about books with Sarah so I’ll be guest hosting with her more frequently starting this year. It means I need to re-evaluate my goals with the blog as it’s a lot more work, but here’s what lies ahead so far:
Four times a year we meet to discuss the books we’re most looking forward to reading for the upcoming season (Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall). Then we have an episode in Nov/Dec where we talk about the older release books we read during the year, which is fun because they’re easy to get at the library—nice to save a bit of money that time of year.
Sarah heard from her listeners that they’d like to hear our thoughts about the books after we’ve read them so she’s adding four Circle Back episodes when we revisit the books and share our opinions.
If you sign up for a Patreon account (link here) you get bonus episodes with all of Sarah’s guests. You get you even more reading options and opinions. So much bookish fabulousness!
If you love reading, then you really need to check out Sarah’s podcast. I’m just one of the many kinds of guests she has on, from audiobook narrators to authors, literary agents, publicists, and other professionals in the book world. Whatever you like to read, Sarah’s probably discussed it. You can find and subscribe to her wherever you listen to podcasts (Apple, Google, Overcast,…).
Along those lines I’ll wrap up with a link to the latest episode which came out today. Sarah and I go WAAAAAAAY back before we were book reviewers and talk about 16 fabulous books we loved from years ago. So much fun and I added even more books to my to-be-read list. Also, I’m also still a brunette in the photo. Woo hoo!
