So much could have gone wrong with Kirt’s Birthday Pick: Kirt is not a big fantasy fan. Tania isn’t crazy about historical fiction. The book is a massive 632 pages of time commitment during the summer months. Thankfully, none of this mattered. We both loved this book and we’d love to tell you why if you’d only listen to the podcast. Tania gets weepy instead of Kirt for a change.
The title we’ve chosen for our Humour podcast is Mary Walsh’s Crying for the Moon. Go read it and then join us for that discussion. Our Indie Pick for the following podcast is Every Blade of Grass by Thomas Wharton.

I shall listen to this on my commute home today, but in advance …
I heard somewhere that Crying For the Moon isn’t very funny. I can’t remember if it’s supposed to be but isn’t, or if it’s not supposed to be at all. Hopefully it’ll be good whatever the case. I guess you’ll soon find out… I’m curious!
Also, I loved Every Blade of Grass!
