About Us

It's like a book club, but we actually read the book. Join hosts Becca and Corinne as they recreate their days working and hanging out at their local independent book store.

Latest Episodes

The Only Good Indians by Stephen Graham Jones

This week we read and discussed The Only Good Indians by Stephen Graham Jones. It's a horror/slasher, a good change of pace, and a little confusing, but that's probably because we are both a little unaccustomed to audiobooks.

Modelland by Tyra Banks

EHello Daaahhhlings. This week we read the splendiferously kaleidoscopic Modelland by Tyra Banks. It's out of print, so if you couldn't get your pretty little hands on a copy, we've got an exhaustive 2 hour breakdown of exactly, or precisely (?) what we think we might have read. It really cannot be missed so get your Smizes ready.

Luster by Raven Leilani

Find Voter Information Here This week we read Luster by Raven Leilani. Like Ottessa Moshfegh's writing it really captures the mood of a generation. We discuss older men, being bad at parties, and getting caught on very unimportant details. Next time we will be reading Modelland by Tyra Banks and you might be able to find it at your library or used, because it's out of print. But there is this video.
