A little while ago, we had a scheduling conflict and Barnabas couldn’t join us for a podcasting session (he had to work or something). But we couldn’t have a snarkless episode, so we asked our good friend Rachel Shaver to join us on the show! Listen in to a rare Barnbas-less episode where we discuss:
- When can you claim a kids book on Goodreads—or can you at all?
- Why doesn’t Goodreads give you a “complete” option vs. “read” for audiobooks?
- Where did we first encounter Wil Wheaton in various media?
- Is writing a kids books harder than writing other kinds of books?
- How do you encourage a love of reading with kids?
- Why do we need to read fiction, given that we work in non-fiction publishing?
A few of the books we mentioned on this episode
- The Paperbag Princess by Robert Munsch
- Guess How Much I Love You by Sam McBrantey
- The Book With No Pictures by BJ Novak
- The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson
- Mother Bruce by Ryan T. Higgins
