Podcast Notes – Episode 272

Hello again bookish friends! Hopefully everyone has had another good reading week, and is getting lots of good rest time along with all of the craziness of preparing for the holiday season. For those of you still shopping for gifts, we have you covered with some of these suggestions. As always, if you click on the photo, it will take you to Amazon.com, where any purchases you make will help to support our podcast 🙂

Seriously why are there so many strange Nic Cage themed gifts?

We also talked about the way that we read books. We all love using audible for audiobooks, and you can give gift subscriptions to the service in 1,3,6, and 12 month increments. It’s a great gift for a friend (or even for yourself!)

Audible Gift Memberships

Many of the books that we review can be read for free on the Kindle app, if you have a Kindle Unlimited subscription (last week, three of the books reviewed were available on KU). Gift memberships are available to this service as well. You can pay per month for $9.99 a month, or you can purchase the subscription in 6, 12 and 24 month increments for a big discount:

Along with gift ideas, we also talked about stuff that was a bit of a bummer, like the news of the new Omicron variant of the Covid virus. This is the TikTok video Magen was talking about:

Another really disturbing bit of news came from Martha, when she told us about this strange new bikini that may soon be sweeping the nation:

those hedgehogs didn’t deserve this fate.

Ok, ok. We talked about books, too.

That’s it for this week, book friends! Hopefully you’re well on your way to getting your shopping done, and will be able to find time to get a good book in as well. See you all next week!
