I know y’all had given us up for dead but the triumphal return of the Reading the End Bookcast has finally arrived! Whiskey Jenny and I return to talk about that whole Harry Potter / magic in America debacle, then to discuss authors who can’t leave their fictional worlds behind. We review (finally) Simon van Booy’s Father’s Day, and we answer a burning question from listener Ashley. You can listen to the podcast in the embedded player below or download the file directly here to take with you on the go.
Note: We experienced so many technical difficulties in the making of this podcast that we began to entertain the possibility that the podcast was cursed. If the audio sounds weird at all, that’ll be why.
Upload of Anne of Green Gables is pending. I did not get a chance to scan it yet! Sorryyyyyyyy.
