Episode 58: Recommending books to each other, including memoir, fantasy, and a graphic novel

Welcome to He Read She Read, a bi-weekly podcast where a couple of married bookworms with very different reading tastes discuss books and the reading life. 

Today we’re recommending four books from our shelves to each other. If your reading tastes match up with either of ours, you’re in for a To Be Read treat. Every other month, we also share a book club-style discussion on one book we both read. On October 27th, we’ll be talking about A Quiet Life in the Country, a Lady Hardcastle Mystery by T.E. Kinsey. We recommend listening to that one on audio if you’re reading along with us
