Hurricane Irene left us scrambling for power and phone service, so we didn't have time to put together a "regular" episode. Instead, this week we bring you, well... YOU, by opening the (voice)mail bag.
We got several voicemails about the study saying spoilers can actually enhance enjoyment of a story. Some of you agreed with the study and some of you agreed with me and my no spoiler stance.
We also got a wonderful response to our episode on author events, including from authors, from a bookstore employee and from many of you who love to attend events.
Finally, our last group includes recommendations for West with the Night by Beryl Markham, Too Many Cooks by Emily Franklin, A Homemade Life by Molly Wizenberg, The Recipe Club by Andrea Israel and Nancy Garfinkel, and the Jedi Journals interview with Ready Player One author Ernie Cline.
