Wonderful show!

This is typically not my sort of podcast, but I love all the other Book Riot shows, so I started listening to this one as well. I really love it! I love reading and discovering new authors/genres, but this show gives me a different perspective. This weekly look into publishing news is so interesting to me and really makes me appreciate my bookshelves even more.

Love this podcast!
