Reading Envy 107: Reading Goals 2018

1/2/2018
More
It is the very best time of the year, the time to pick new reading goals and to see how we did the last time around. I share progress on the goals from 2017, new goals for 2018, and a few surprise guests join me to offer their ideas for one of my goals. At the end, I rattle off a few statistics from my 2017 reading year.

12/26/2017

Jenny got together with a longtime online reading friend, Jon Laubinger, and host of his own podcast, Film Baby Film. We discussed the book Roadside Picnic alongside the film Stalker. You should expect spoilers for both, as this is an in-depth discussion.

12/19/2017

Jenny, previous and future guests of the podcast, and a few other readers come together to share their best reads of the year. In typical Reading Envy fashion, these are not necessarily books that were published in 2017. What was your best read of the year? Feel free to share at the end of this post.

Reading Envy 103: Duchess Potatoes with Carol Ann Ellison

12/5/2017
More
Carol participated in the readalong discussion of The Secret History, and came back for a full episode. Jenny's mic was on the wrong setting, so if she sounds a bit like an echo-chamber, the issue is known and fixed in the next episode. Hopefully it's not too distracting! The name of the episode is the answer to the thing Jenny couldn't remember.

11/29/2017
More
Sometime in this past year, I realized that another podcaster, Kendra, lived in the same city as me. Her co-host is Autumn and they host the Reading Women Podcast (more info and links below.) We decided to use the opportunity to talk about the best books we read by women this year.

Reading Envy 101: A Different Kind of Time Travel

11/21/2017
More
Jenny was so excited to be in the same city as Karen, in October, so we planned reading dates, a meat fest (not a euphemism), and time to record an episode. Warning: There is a bit of a spoiler for Exit West on here, but nothing you haven't learned if you've read any reviews of the book.

Reading Envy 100: 100 Reasons Why

11/14/2017
More
To my great amazement, this is the 100th episode of the Reading Envy Podcast! It has been such a journey to host and produce this podcast. I invited other readers to weigh in on the best ten books they read in the last ten years - just like a normal Reading Envy episode, they do not need to have been published in the last ten years. Some readers have connections to the podcast, others are people on my guest wishlist that I haven't been able to convince to be on the show. Some lists are...

Reading Envy 099: Readalong of The Secret History

11/7/2017
More
Our first readalong was so much fun that we had another one just a few months later. This time the vote was between four books by women, and this one swept the vote with almost 43% (see the chart below.) The book must have been in the air, because Book of the Month randomly offered it as an add-on (not a paid advertisement) and it felt like a bunch of people were reading it even before the readalong started. The book is 25 years old and still holds up, and we had a lot to talk about. I was...

Reading Envy 098: Just a Bunch of Stuff that Happened

10/24/2017

Jenny sits down to talk to Dr. Bryan Bibb, an associate professor of religion at the university where she works. We talk about horror and religion, mythology and ... baseball? Well. Jenny likes to have guests who read in genres not frequently featured on Reading Envy. Warning: this episode is a bit longer than the average episode, and there may be triggers for sexual abuse and spiders.

Jenny once made a friend on Goodreads. This friend read all the same books Jenny read. They met up in Baltimore at an interesting bookstore and could have talked for days! So we decided to meet up again to talk books for the podcast. I hope you enjoy hearing from Lauren, because I'm so happy for you to meet her.

Yanira returns to discuss books with Jenny. We each select three books we've read and liked recently but also manage to throw in other books we like. That's pretty typical!

Lindy is a Canadian reader who joins Jenny to talk about books we've read recently. You will learn about Lindy's interesting book clubs, authors from Alberta, and how books can form movies in your mind. Please forgive Jenny's voice as she suffered a coughing fit. The coughs were edited out but the voice struggled at the end!
