Episode 223: Getting Into A Reading Groove
Have you made New Year's Resolutions to lose weight, double your pay, and read more books? Well, we can't help you with two of those, but Josh and Dietrich are here with some suggestions on how to jump start your reading habits for the year. The duo dismiss the idea of "guilty pleasures", encouraging you to grab whatever makes you grin. Josh talks about the joy of always having a book in his pocket, and how technology makes it easier than ever to read a few pages while waiting for your oil change. Dietrich recommends revisiting some favorite books, reminding yourself why it is that you love this hobby in the first place. Finally, they talk about reading as part of a group, and taking recommendations from people you trust. In addition, Dietrich is disappointed with the third book in Brandon Sanderson's new epic series, but raves over a gonzo journalism-style look at professional kitchens, and Josh is pleasantly surprised by how much he enjoyed a reread. Finally, they wrap up with a spoiler-free discussion of The Last Jedi, a Star Wars film that left them both quite happy. You can send questions or comments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
