Hello there, bookish friends. Hoping everyone had a relaxing weekend filled with bookish endeavors! Our live show is coming up quickly, are you guys ready? We’ll be podcasting from Full Circle Books in Oklahoma City, OK on April 1 (but this is no joke!) starting at 7:00pm. After the podcast we’ll be discussing our buddy read, The Kindest Lie by Nancy Johnson.

They even have bathing suit bottoms that are capri length now:
I’m definitely down for the new trend. I’m willing to go back to the 20’s when bathing suits looked like this:
We even talked about something a little serious this time. Goodreads is great for a lot of things, but there have been issues with reviews not being exactly kosher. I’m sure you’ve seen it before. How does a book that hasn’t been written yet have so many reviews? 593 ratings?!?
We also talked about some weird ad campaigns, like this one Martha found for vitamins…
Word to the wise, don’t look up what a panty hamster is. It will mess with your algorythms.
Yep. We talked about books too…
Along with ‘Charlie’ we were trying to come up with other well known names for the male genitalia. We found quite a few that were new to us. You can find some synonyms here: What else have we called Charlie?
That’s is for another week, bookish friends! Hope that you have plenty of sunshine in your future, and lots of book related goodness!
