Reading Envy 011: People of the Book

On this episode, we bring back Bryan Alexander from Episode 002, to have a discussion about reading.  Rather than pick two books each, we just let books come up along the way, and that list is below!  While you're here, why don't you share with us how and why you read, either in the comments here or by tweeting to @readingenvy.

We mentioned Twitter, and you can find each of us there.
