Martha (marthag503) I've been spending a lot of time with Modern Mrs. Darcy's What Should I Read Next. I have a whole notebook dedicated to that podcast. I want to branch out to others though, I just haven't gotten around to them.


message 4: by Tammy Dayton (new)

Tammy Dayton | 3 comments I'm assuming it's a book that the podcast discusses. I subscribed to the book riot podcast; I wouldn't have without this prompt.


message 5: by Jessica (new)

Jessica (bookwrm526) | 28 comments Pop Culture Happy Hour does a segment called What’s Making Us Happy This Week in which they sometimes discuss books/graphic novels. They’ve also done a few book specific episodes, including one all about romance novels!! Aaron Mahnke hosts a podcast called Lore and he has written several books based around that. Levar Burton Reads.....Shedunnit...you could read one of the books from My Dad Wrote a Porno...ooh ooh Overdue Podcast, or Worst Best Sellers!!! I think I might listen to too many podcasts...

Jessica (bookwrm526) | 28 comments Oh, and The History Chicks, they always give a list of books they read for the episode or that they recommend generally

Eleni K (elenikara) | 4 comments It was either on My Favorite Murder podcast or another true crime one but I believe they mentioned I'll Be Gone in the Dark: One Woman's Obsessive Search for the Golden State Killer

Or I may read one of the books I've wanted to read because of its discussion on Overdue Podcast

Anne ✨ Finds Joy (annefindsjoy) Or, perhaps if this fits, there are some books that are written with the format of a podcast: (they make for GREAT audiobook listens!)

Six Stories (book 1, and there's 2 sequels)
West Cork
Sadie

Tara (tjwill) | 14 comments I’ve been on the library wait list for the audiobook of Killers of the Flower Moon for months. I decided I wanted to read it after listening to the Literary Disco podcast episode on it, so that will be my pick for this one.

Bobbi Green | 1 comments Aaron Mahnke does a podcast called Lore and has several books called "The World of Lore:..." I plan on picking up one those books for the prompt.

It is so worth the wait! One of my favorites!

Yay! I hope you like them! Not everyone does, but I like the easy conversational style they have.


Margie (Bookzombie) (bookzombie08) | 52 comments I'm kind of ashamed to say that I still haven't read We Should All Be Feminists yet, so I'm probably going to read that. I know it's related to a TED talk but that should still count.

We are definitely okay with books that relate to TED talks for this prompt. TED has a weekly podcast, so ... it's all good.

I read WSABF last year and liked it a lot. It wasn't a quick read, though. It's very dense with information and ideas.


message 20: by Kelli (new)

Kelli (ukyprincesskelli) “Evicted” by Matthew Desmond is my choice for this prompt. I’ve listened to so many podcasts discuss how wonderful this is including one of my favorite TED talk speakers, Michael Murphy.

So excited for this one!

Thanks! I was going to listen to it on audio but maybe I should read the print then.

I really enjoyed this book. I learned a lot. I hope you like it too.

Marni (literaturenut) | 0 comments I read I'll Be Gone in the Dark for this prompt and I highly recommend it. Michelle McNamara was a beautiful writer and her editors did a superb job finishing the book after her death.
