Reading the End Bookcast, Ep.51: How to Recommend Books, plus Salman Rushdie’s Latest Novel

As we prepare to recommend books for you and your loved ones, Whiskey Jenny and I discuss how and when we recommend books (spoiler alert: enthusiastically and always), as well as how we cope with failed recommendations. Then we review Salman Rushdie’s latest novel, Two Years, Eight Months, and Twenty-Eight Nights. You can listen to the podcast in the embedded player below or download the file directly here to take with you on the go.

  • Recommending books is my all time favorite thing to do. (Other than actually reading the books, of course) I get so excited when someone asks me to help them pick out a book at the store. Good luck with your recs!
