054: Hello books, my old friends

As we're getting into the swing of things in this pandemic (what a weird thing to type), some of us are feeling more like revisiting our old friends - books.

Bring Your Own Book and Beverage - Tuesdays at 4pm on Zoom

On Tuesday afternoons at 4pm (Central), the Book Squad is offering BYOBB - Bring Your Own Book & Beverage - on Zoom (click the link for the Zoom info!) During the hour, anyone and everyone is welcome to get on and share what you've been reading... or just listen if you don't want to share!
