Bad sad new format

By LeenieCK - Sep 10 2019
Read more
It was nice to have a podcast to hear a brief synopsis of many books by a reader of many books. I respect how well read the host is and look forward to hearing about books that are not mentioned ON EVERY OTHER PODCAST. Do NOT like the new format where only 2 books are discussed in depth, think this format change was a bad idea. I really only want to add to my TBR and this is no longer fitting the bill.

Could be better

I enjoy the substance of this podcast however Liberty talks way too fast And seems to very much ramble about Books. It almost sounds as if she has a child speaking
