Write Reads #30 All My Puny Sorrows by Miriam Toews

allmypunysorrowsOur 30th podcast sees (or hears) the return of another guest host, Rick, formerly of Another Book Blog, Canon Fodder, and Through the Pages (now a little caterpillar in his cocoon waiting to become a butterfly). Get ready for a fairly lengthy discussion about the evolution and direction of book blogging at the beginning. This is followed by an equally lengthy, and pretty heavy, discussion of Kirt’s Birthday Pick. We are certain that you’ll enjoy all of it, eventually.

We also announce our August Classic pick. Our former guest host, Alexis Kienlen, who joined us for our discussion of Laurence Miall’s Blind Spot, will be returning to discuss Marian Engel’s Bear. It should be interesting.

    I finally listened to this! I loved this book and liked all the stuff you had to say about it, but what I really want to say is that I hope you will continue. There was some worrisome talk at the beginning about what’s the point, etc., but you guys sound like you’re having so much fun while doing your podcasts. Don’t stop! I also think Rick needs to figure out how he can come back in a way that he’s happy with, because he makes me laugh. πŸ™‚
