A tangent episode in which Kaisha and Kelsey talk summer reading ambitions, bookselling delight, and wild reading experiences. Come along as we discuss Kaisha’s culling of her books and Kelsey post MFA reading liberation. We chat about using scary or intense audiobooks to motivate our running. Kelsey talks about poetry allusions in Dean Koontz and we debate the use of “literature name-dropping” as character development. We revel in the importance of all stories and debate the value of originality.
