Dear Book Nerd Podcast: Episode 1

Good news for fans of the Dear Book Nerd advice column we started back in October: it’s now a podcast!

 

In this, the pilot episode, Rebecca Schinsky and I discuss (and attempt to answer) two reader-submitted questions:

Dear Book Nerd:

I’m 33. I averaged 36 books a year for the last 5 years. All four of my grandparents died before they hit 75. Let’s be optimistic and say I make it to 80. That means I only have time for 1700 more books. And Ms/Mrs/Miss/Dr Book Nerd, NEW ONES COME OUT ALL THE FREAKING TIME. How do I prioritize?!?!?! How can I read all the books?!?!?? HELP!!!!!!

– Kyle

Dear Book Nerd,

Any advice for a book lover with a very busy full time job? Right now I often forgo sleep to read books I love. Not sure that’s the healthiest habit. Should I just accept that I can’t read as much as I’d like?

Thanks,

Melisa the Struggling Bookworm
