A podcast about what I'm currently reading and how that matches up (or not...) to my reading challenge list devolves into an existential crisis about my online and creative lives. Who doesn't love listening to someone ELSE questioning their entire existence?!
How do you arrange your bookshelves? Alphabetical order? Grouped by subject? Arranged in a rainbow of colored spines? I'm re-arranging my picture books and children's books - how should I organize them?
I attended my FIRST American Library Association Midwinter conference at the end of January, and it was AWESOME. Listen to me rave about the experience and all the free books I got to read. Chime in about your own conference experiences - library or otherwise! Isn't it awesome to be surrounded by YOUR PEOPLE?
This episode I talk about books that were favorites, and wonder if they still are. Do you still have favorites from years ago? Have you re-read them recently? Do you still love them, or have your tastes changed? How do you react when you recommend a favorite to someone and they don't like it? Listen and share your thoughts!
Whew, well THAT was an unintentional hiatus! I slip back in riiiight under the 2016 deadline for one last episode about the state of the blog (still here, believe it or not!), what's in store for 2017 (fun!), and my favorite books read this year in many, many different categories. Happy New Year!
It's October, so it's basically Halloween, right? I fondly reminisce about the Scary Stories books by Alvin Schwartz, then book talk a few horror books I'm challenging myself to read this month. Do you read horror? What books scare you?
Let's celebrate Banned Books Week! I talk about a few banned middle grade and young adult books, then try to guess their star rating on Goodreads. (A total rip-off of Adam Carolla's Rotten Tomatoes game, I'll freely admit!) Play along and tweet your score, or leave a comment on Facebook or the blog!
A review of If I Was Your Girl by Meredith Russo, and a discussion of some of the issues surrounding the transgender author.
The first episode after a six-week hiatus is, I'll admit, a little navel-gazey. But listen in to see what's changing about the podcast, and How I Feel About Books as a whole!
The interview fun from the last episode spills over into this one, with Mel Schuit turning the questions around to me! More picture book fun and a super interesting question that I want you all to answer in the comments!
