Reading the End Bookcast, Ep.77: Books of the Sea and Donna Tartt’s The Secret History

I FORGOT IT WAS WEDNESDAY YESTERDAY. I apologize to everyone. Mardi Gras happened, and it’s not that I was out partying (I wasn’t, I’m an old lady curmudgeon), it’s just that I had time off work and it threw off my schedule. Sorry this is so late!
