055: The (Reading) Struggle is Real

We're back, we're back! The Book Squad Podcast is back! Kate Gramlich, our longtime cohost, has brazenly left the library for another job. (Everyone wave to Kate at her new job!)  So along with starting back recording, Book Squad member Kimberly Lopez has taken up the mantle of shenaniganizing about books with Polli Kenn and we had a great time starting again and starting afresh together! We're so glad to be back and we hope you're ready to come along for the ride as we reboot and bring the bookish banter back to your ears! 

In this episode, we talk about... struggling to read and what we’re doing instead: Yoga, Niall Horan, Sweet Tooth, Farmer’s Marketing, Reading Challenges, podcasts and more!
