Best of Both Worlds podcast: Reading round up

Does fall weather make you feel like curling up with a good book? Then this week’s episode of Best of Both Worlds is for you.

In this episode, Sarah and I talk all things reading. We share reading habits and preferences (are you team e-books, audiobooks, paper, or all of the above?). We talk favorite titles and more.

In the Q&A we answer a question from a listener who wants to get more involved in her school’s parent-teacher association.

Please give the episode a listen! And if you’re looking for a community of people with which to discuss all things work and life, please consider joining our Patreon group. Our forum features 3-4 discussion threads per week on topics such as planning, weekend pants, supervising kid music practice, and more. Our next virtual meet-up will be on 11/28, when we’ll discuss Virginia Sole-Smith’s book, Fat Talk. Membership is $9/month (Patreon has a “join for free” option, but scroll down for the real sign up button, as you won’t be able to access any of the content with the free selection). Hope to see you there!

  1. I was interested to hear that neither of you use Goodreads! Either to track what you’ve read or just to organize a TBR list. You’re inspired me to try and fit reading into more timeslots in my day. Love your show!

    1. @Bonnie- thanks! So glad you’re enjoying the show. I haven’t gotten into Goodreads personally for finding books, but I know a lot of people have found my books there, which I really appreciate.

  2. This was a fun episode for your “reader” fans. I appreciated hearing the different perspectives on reading in your podcast and am looking forward to cozy book season.

    I was also surprised that neither of you used Goodreads, especially for the tracking aspects. I do use it as a means to find books but my primary usage of the site is as a repository of all the books I want to read – the list is long. I love the ability to take a picture of the book when I walk by it in an airport or bookshop and have it automatically save into my To Read list. I also use it for tracking – how many books/pages am I reading a year, and like Sarah and her page tracking, it helps me really “see” when I am stuck on a book that perhaps I should move back to the To Read or remove from the bookshelf all together.

    I personally have multiple books in multiple variations – Audio, Kindle, Hard Copy – fiction & non-fiction – in progress at any given time. I love the flexibility of having a book with me at any given time and the ease of using a Kindle when traveling or at appointments. However, I also still love a good physical book with a blanket, a fireplace, and a cup of tea. ♥

    Thanks for the inspiration to read in bed this morning instead of scrolling.

    1. @Diane – glad you liked the episode! And yes, I can see how tracking can tell you when it’s time to move on to the next book…
