At long last, we are rolling out our FIRST new interview style episode. First up, is the owner of the local Barre3 studio, Rebekah Kauffman. Thanks for being our first guinea pig!!
Of course, now we are in the midst of a world dominated by COVID-19 quarantines, so I am not sure how we will wrangle upcoming episodes. Fingers crossed that everyone is well and taking care of themselves.
If you haven’t yet, visit our website and see our recent post about why you should support indie bookstores and how to help. With our last post, we shared that we are now affiliates with The Bookshop, which is one of the ways to support indies and vote with your dollars. Our show notes for S4E3 go into more detail about The Bookshop. You can also read all about their model here.
More of an audiobook person? Use this link and the code SHOPBOOKSTORESNOW to get 2 audiobooks for the price of 1 ($14.99) by giving Libro.FM a try. They are donating 100% of their profit to partner indie stores when you use this code. Again, a small indie company trying to give you an alternative to Amazon/Audible. Cori genuinely loves it!!! Part of all audiobook sales go to member bookstores. This link benefits Brightside. Feel free to see if your local indie benefits from either of these great companies.
Chatting with Bookish Kindred Spirits
Kyrie and Cori love talking books with each other. Moving into our 4th season (!?), we decided it was time to mix things up again. What better way than to reach out into our community and visit with some other folks about their reading habits and book likes and dislikes.
In each interview episode, you will also get to know our guest beyond their bookish habits. After we learn a bit more about their reading preferences, we will make some reading recommendations.
What We Drank
We enjoyed cups of Tranquil Peach Herbal Tea from Plum Deluxe. We all found it tasty and relaxing. Perfect for our conversation together. As Plum Deluxe Ambassadors, you can use our code BOOKSANDTEA and our link to get 10% off your first order.
