91. Bookish superlatives from an unprecedented reading year

After a few months off, we’re back in your feeds to discuss some of our favorite (and least favorite) books of 2021. We’ve organized this episode into bookish superlatives that let us share books you may not hear us talk about otherwise. We also offer a reflection on our reading year as a whole, including what it’s been like to read with newborns around. It’s great to be back at the mic talking all things books!
