About Us

A podcast created by book lovers for book lovers! Join us as we discuss a different book every other week from murder mysteries, to autobiographies, and everything in between. We'll share our thoughts, hear all of yours, and (in some episodes) attempt to answer the age-old question of which is better, the book or the movie? (Spoiler alert: It's probably the book)
