  • Bookish Moments: “my whole life is bookish” and a mother-daughter buddy read

  • Current Reads: an unexpected mix of fiction and non-fiction this week turns things on their head

  • Deep Dive: we have a long chat about Traci’s reading life, her Shakespeare challenge, the podcast, and all the snacks

  • Book Presses: a few non-fiction presses that readers will love.
