Because Vacation Reads Are The Best Reads Around

A Favor?!
As a big favor to us and the growth of our podcast, please take a few minutes to leave a review and/or rating for the podcast on iTunes, a comment on Soundcloud or interact wherever you listen to podcasts and talk about books.

Gayle and Nicole talk about dark book-based dramas on various TV networks, particularly Caroline Kepnes’ You (Lifetime and Netflix) and Teddy Wayne’s Loner (HBO). Then they get into their favorite vacation reading experiences – books they’ve read when they were away, and why they still have and impact. Does the place we read books impact how we enjoy them?
