The Bookslingers Bookslinging Podcast #1

Patient readers, it seems we have actually managed to do it. We have recorded a podcast. Rest assured that either of us accomplishing anything of significance that is neither school nor work-related is a big deal.

Anyway. Hopefully I've set this up properly and you can actually listen to it. Please let us know either way, either so that I can fix it or we can delight in your company.

Welcome to the inaugural Bookslingers Bookslinging Podcast. This involves mainly Corene and myself rambling aimlessly with some occasional actual content.

This Week In Books we talk about the CNIB's Right to Read campaign and the CLA's book of the year winners.

This week's theme is Girls Who Kick Butt, and the podcast features (and will probably continue to feature) mini-reviews of our Top Six books in the theme. This week's books are:

#6: Podkayne of Mars by Robert A. Heinlein
#5: Faery Rebels by R.J. Anderson
#4: Dealing with Dragons by Patricia C. Wrede
#3: Book of a Thousand Days by Shannon Hale
#2: The Wee Free Men by Terry Pratchett

And this week's #1 Girls Who Kick Butt Book is Graceling, by Kristin Cashore. The #1 books get twice as much aimless rambling as the other books, because their greatness demands it. This book? Definitely demands it.
