What is "Real" Reading?

Welcome to the Dear Book Nerd podcast, a bi-weekly show that answers YOUR questions about life, love, and literature! This week, the mighty and powerful Victor LaValle joins me on the show. We discuss issues like: is buying used books bad for authors? Is listening to audiobooks considered "real" reading? And much more. (Also, about 20 minutes in or so, Victor tells an AMAZING story about meeting Harper Lee at a used book store.) Don't miss it!
