It's Tuesday, which means a new episode of What Should I Read Next!
Today’s guest is Andrea Griffith. Andrea is a former medical librarian, mom of two daughters, and independent bookstore owner, and she came to me with a plea: she misses reading at whim, is craving depth, and wants help finding great books that aren't relentlessly new, new, new.
As you can imagine, I resonated so much with this request and was more than happy to help.
