In this episode, Nicole and Gayle give a midterm report on their summer reading goals. (Surprise! They didn’t stick to their lists.) They also welcome a guest - audiobook narrator Xe Sands - and discuss the challenges of recording audiobooks (accents!) and listening to audiobooks (you can’t skim through torture scenes). There may also be a Time Traveler’s Wife love-fest. Listen to the end to find out how to score a copy of Xe’s latest audiobook performance, The Last Kid Left (written by Rosecrans Baldwin)
