  1. Hi...I am new to goodreads and wondering how to find your reviews there? Thanks! (i really enjoy your podcasts but am usually driving and then can't remember the books later ☺)

  2. Hi, Leslie! Mom and I usually only post star reviews on Goodreads (I very occasionally write something if I'm feeling snarky and/or indignant about a bad or perplexing book). The best thing for you to do would be to friend each of us on GoodReads (I'm Tracie Bezerra and Mom is Barbara Kluver there) and use the show notes here on the blog or hopefully they come up on your podcatcher with each episode to jog your memory about a title. Or you can just look through our Read books on our Goodreads profiles. Best of luck, and I'm so glad you're enjoying the podcast :-)
