Reading Envy 136: Six Pack with Elizabeth

12/4/2018
More
I wanted to call this episode "Raised by Wolves" for obvious reasons, but Episode 114 already did that! Whoops. Both Elizabeth and I seemed to be in an animal reading mood lately, and that permeates our picks. Elizabeth talks about some YA book events she attended in Houston, and Jenny talks about her home library, and both of us talk about books we've read and enjoyed lately.

Luke and Juliane are back to chat books, comedy, and library apps. Everyone shares what they've been up to this summer, and we start accidentally sportscasting, and have to refocus on books.

This is Casey's first time as a guest on the podcast, although his voice may sound familiar from the Best of the Year episodes.
