Chapter 35 - Let's Talk


Every month Scott Richards, of WEZV 105.9 in Myrtle Beach, and I get together and talk books. He is such an avid reader and fellow book nerd that we have great discussions both on and off the air. Our theme is always what we've read, what is on our TBR (to be read) pile, and what is coming up that we are excited about. During our chats, Scott has told me about some terrific books to read such as A Gentleman in Moscow and Where the Crawdads Sing. I, in turn, have shared some that I have loved such as The Southern Book Clubs Guide to Slaying Vampires and Just One Damned Thing After Another.


If you are not in our market and can't hear the recommendations I will be posting them here on the blog after every show. Here are the books we discussed in August. Since the list is long I won't give summaries of each but just a little hint of what kind of book it is. You'll notice that some of these I've mentioned before as I have read them since the last time Scott and I talked books.
