Best Book Ever

Jul 6, 2020

The point of the Best Book Ever Podcast is that I read your favorite book. Here we are, six episodes in, and I already had to abandon that premise. I could not force myself through this book no matter how hard I tried.

We still talked, and it was a great talk. All of my talks with Amy Teegan are great talks - she is a voracious reader, and a genuinely smart and funny person. Even though I hated the book, I was so grateful for the opportunity to have her tell me why she loves it so much.
