Book Gang Podcast Episode 22: Books About Books (With Fables Books)

Book Gang Podcast Episode 22: Books About Books

This month, Kristin from Fables Books joins us to explore books about books through the brand new Fables Books Reading Challenge! We discuss our favorite books that embrace fictional bookstore settings and libraries. This episode has you covered whether you are looking for a love story or that perfect true crime nonfiction book escape with. This is the stack you need for your next book club night and can be a great bonding tool for ANYONE who simply loves books. 

If you love reading, these backlist forgotten books are perfect for fans of comforting reading escape. I don’t know a book lover that wouldn’t want to read a book about books and reading. There is nothing better than celebrating the power of books and everyone who loves them.

Along with today’s discussion, we are also talking about The Storygraph tool and how you can join the bookstore’s challenge or any other challenge to expand your reading life this year. Learn how this tool can be used in conjunction with your Goodreads profile or as a complete replacement for tracking and discovering your next stack of books.
