On this week’s episode of Currently Reading, Kaytee and Meredith are discussing:

  • Bookish Moments: regular reader kids and bookish friends lavishing love

  • Current Reads: mysteries abound, as does middle grade, plus some overlap between the two

  • Deep Dive: how many books do you read at once?

  • Book Presses: a book that shifted our perspective and a retelling of a Greek myth
