Just found out there is a third! Very exited to read this. But, this book juggler is already reading a lot of books.

Kaye 1. Good answer. 2y
monalyisha I love “brouhaha”! 2y
Sharpeipup @Kaye maybe that‘s my surprising fact because it tends to throw people off when I look to my husband for my age (he‘s faster at math) 2y
Sharpeipup @monalyisha I can still remember discussing brouhaha in my high school English class. 2y

It was cute. There is a sequel. I don't think I'll be reading it, although I can see some of my 2nd & 3rd graders enjoying this.

It's a Reading Nook Tea, cozy socks, Harry Potter movie marathon, reading kind of day.

#audiobooks kept me in the game this month. I haven't had much sit down reading time lately. I'm going to enjoy a little now. Wish I could have participated in #litsypartyofone, but it wasn't in the stars for this weekend. Hope all of you participating are having a blast!!

"Good-bye, school shoes," said Tuesday McGillycuddy, dropping her battered black lace-ups into a bin full of lunch wraps and orange peel.

🔊I am a firm believer in serendipitous book finds and book karma. This podcast totally was my jam. Serendipitous books and book discussion if you didn't go to university for literature. Hilarious, informative, and these two are so likable.
•Any other podcast recs?
-I like Reading Women, Biblioclast, and The Readers. Looking for more!

KarenUK 'Books and authors'... it's a BBC radio4 podcast that has two different shows under the same podcast... Open Book and A Good Read 3y
Jess_Read_This @KarenUK oh! Nice recommendation! I've written it down and that will be my next one to listen to. 3y
Bambolina_81 I love the Readers and the BBC and Book riot podcasts. The BBC World Service bookclub with Harriet Gilbert is also good as is Book Club with James Naughtie. Have you tried #Eclecticreaders podcast? The presenters are all on here too 😊 3y

BookBabe My favorite is All The Books with @Liberty . It makes your TBR grow faster than you can keep up with it! 3y
BookNAround Ha! How long do you have? Here are the book related ones I listen to that haven't already been mentioned: Reading Envy, By the Book, Well Read (there are two and I listen to both), Adventures with Words, The Penguin Podcast, Drunk Booksellers, The Paper Donkey Podcast, Tea or Books?, Book Club Appetizer, What Should I Read Next?, So Many Damn Books, Reading the End, The Reading Life, Literary Disco, The Librarian Is In, Just the Right Book, 3y
BookNAround (Continued) Get Booked, Covered, Beaks and Geeks, All the Books!, and Look Inside This Book Club. Yes, I might be a little excessive. 3y
twohectobooks @BookNAround how often do those update? I can only keep up with a dozen podcasts total! 3y
BookNAround @twohectobooks It depends on the podcast. Some are weekly, some every two weeks, and some are catch as catch can. I'd try listening to one or two of each and see which ones interest you the most. Honestly, I'm always rather behind but I catch up now and again after long drives (15 hours on a trip this weekend and it's unlikely my daughter will help drive). 3y
Zelma Books on the Nightstand (which ended but has a very long archive), Literary Disco, So Many Damn Books. 3y
Suet624 Love this post and all the recommendations! 3y
Ncostell Love listening to bookish podcasts and will be adding some more to my repertoire from these suggestions! I also enjoy listening to the Book Cougars podcast and Just the Right Book with Roxanne Coady as well. 3y
Victoriahoperose I really like Get Booked, All the Books and What Should I Read Next. 3y
andrew61 Probably many have been mentioned but here goes; the librarian is in, well read, what should I read next, reading envy of course, and The Readers. I like Literary friction, tea or books. A gr8 crime one is Two crime writers and a microphone, which is very funny but has brill recommendations.The BBC is a wonderful resource esp Open book, a good read, and for occasional literary intellectual discussions which make me feel worthy but dim In our time 3y
Lmstraubie I would have to agree - Love What Should I Read Next, The Librarian is In & The Book Riot Podcast. Also love Books Between for #middlegrade book reviews. 3y
Jess_Read_This Ask and you shall receive!! Twenty fold too!!! 💕🔊💕 Thank you so much Littens! I can't wait to listen to all of these! This is so much better than my search engine attempts! @KarenUK @Bambolina_81 @BookBabe @BookNAround @Zelma @Ncostell @Victoriahoperose @andrew61 @Lmstraubie 3y
Jess_Read_This @BookNAround I have a decent amount of time between a long commute and a desk job where it's necessary to put headphones on at times to muffle the noise around me.. lol! Thank you again for all the stellar recommendations! 3y
Zelma I love these posts too because it gives me new ideas! 💕 3y
EclecticReaders @Bambolina_81 thanks for the shoutout! @Jess_Read_This hope you'll check us out! 😃 3y

Diving back into this one. I find it amusing that Serendipity Smith has JK Rowling level fame in the book but my daughter won't get that since she has no idea of what a phenomenon HP was when the books were coming out. Right now, we are liking the surprising detail about Baxterr.

My daughter wasn't sure she liked or trusted the Librarian character at first - perhaps because I had too much fun with her voice? - but once we got to this passage, she decided she liked the Librarian (81).

bernadette This passage made me think of Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert. #bigmagic 3y

Picked this up at a Scholastic Book Fair last year for my eldest and we are finally starting it this week. Love this stage where I can read chapter books with her. I plan on reading to her and with her for as long as she will let me.

This was surprisingly lovely. I won't go into the details of plot, but it deals with the magic of stories and story-writing, and so of course it's good. 9/10
