Best Book Ever

Feb 1, 2021

I laughed so hard while recording with Miranda that my daughter actually came into my office to check on me. Miranda officially coined my new favorite book genre: Bumpy Covers. You already know exactly what that means, don’t you? There are certain books you turn to when you can’t deal with the world, and those books frequently have bumpy covers. Miranda cherishes books, and I so enjoyed talking to her about how she lives with them, how she shows them love, how she marks them up, and why “Memoirs of a Geisha” by Arthur Golden is the Best Book Ever.
