The Thrills and Woes of Book Recommendations

Show Notes

When you’re trying to get your friend to read a book.


Book recommendations. Anyone who loves books deals with these things on a near daily basis. Whether you’re recommending books or receiving book recommendations, we’ve all had experiences with recommendations. In this episode, we sit down and talk about where we get most of our recommendations and how things like BookTube are changing the ways we used to learn about new books.

Also discussed in this episode…
