Rank #1: Reading Envy 166: On Brand with Karen

Podcast cover
Read more
Karen and Jenny discuss books they've read and liked recently, although Jenny was reading up to the minute we started recording because she wanted to talk about one of these books with Karen specifically. We talk about graphic novels in other languages, romance representation, and obscure science. And, as usual, we laugh a lot.

Rank #2: Reading Envy 150: Rife with Storytelling with Sara

Podcast cover
Read more
Jenny and Sara combat humidity and allergies to get together to chat books. We cover escapes and intergalactic refugees, snakes and fish, serial killers and out of print reads. Jenny can't decide on a third book so discusses three more books, and Sara has a word bleeped out from a story too funny not to include.

Rank #3: Reading Envy 163: Fainting Goats with Lauren

Podcast cover
Read more
If you're a fan of the show, you have already heard the episode with Lauren and Jenny recommending books for Women in Translation month. We recorded this episode earlier in the summer but still talk quite a bit about regional book goals, translated works, and the wonder of lingering in a place through our reading. This is the first posting of this episode, Jenny was just rearranging the furniture a bit behind the scenes, so when Lauren says "last month" she means June and not July. Don't trip over that table!

Rank #7: Reading Envy 156: Introvert Intentions with Scott

Podcast cover
Read more
Jenny and Scott chat books they've read and liked lately, from travelogues to medical/cultural miscommunication, from introvert tales to science fiction short stories that are really more about philosophy than anything else. You'll have to excuse them as they nerd out over journaling and planners for a while (and Jenny deleted half that conversation, so you don't even know!)
