a podcast about books and why they're awesome
Josh on Tom Acitelli’s The Audacity of Hops (Episode 55)
Rebecca on Benjamin Percy’s Red Moon (Episode 55)
This year’s Bash has a party, an after-party, and an after-after-party. BECAUSE WE LOVE YOU AND WANT YOU TO BE HAPPY, that’s why.
I’ve been doing “required reading” for well over a month, and now that that’s done I am a little at a loss. I don’t know where to start! So many good books have come out in the last few months, plus let us not forget the mountain of backlist waiting for “some day.” A crippling amount of possibility. Fortunately someone just told me that I MUST READ THIS BOOK IMMEDIATELY (it doesn’t come out until February 2014 in the meantime, which just goes to prove that I am perpetually either 6 months behind or 6 months ahead) so I started it last night. I haven’t gotten to the Star Wars part yet; if I had to I’d say probably that the first 50 pages remind me more of the Mudder Colony in Firefly, but this is in no way a bad thing. —Jenn
