    I think you need a NSFW warning? 🙂 I simultaneously can’t wait and am dreading listening to my dumb voice!!

      Where are people working where they can listen to book club podcasts? I want to work there! I think that most of our listeners know that we are NSFW, though.

      Your voice isn’t dumb. You speak with eloquence and intelligence (unlike some people). – Kirt

    Loved this, although I didn’t actually listen to the part where you were discussing the book, because I haven’t read it yet. But the rest of it was very entertaining. Laura, your voice didn’t sound dumb at all! 🙂 And, Tania, I just have to say that now I am worried about what you will think of AJ Fikry. Because, really it isn’t the greatest book of all time. It is good, but I think the reason it is getting lots of attention is because it appeals to a wide range of readers. There’s not as much love/hate controversy over it. Everyone just likes it, because it’s hard not to, but not because it’s going to blow you away. Does that make any sense, or lower your expectations at all?
    Also, Laura, I couldn’t ever get into The Girls, and actually ended up putting it away. I didn’t ever make it to the middle, so I will be curious to hear what you think of the rest of it. I hope the second half is better than the first. I also might have been disappointed, because I had just read Rush Home Road, which I loved!!!, and The Girls was not even close. Ok, I think that’s all I wanted to say. Oops, it’s kinda long.

      I am the most long winded speaker and writer in the world. One need never apologize to me for long comments 🙂
      I’ll try to keep my expectations for AJ Fikry to a low boil. Thank you for trying to keep me at the simmer stages. -Tania
