Bonus Episode: Booker Longlist Madness

A 15-minute bonus episode in which Kaisha obsesses over the booker longlist and discusses her reading strategy for this overambitious goal with the determination of Napoleon riding into battle, her marriage bookshelf as a portrait of the state of her marriage, and the importance of reading books outside of her normal reading patterns.

Welcome to Read Write Repeat.

This month we will be giving away a copy of The Queen of Blood by Sarah Beth Durst and a bunch of adorable succulent bookmarks  – we explain how to enter toward the end of the show notes.
