Reading Envy 023: Patron Saint of the Misfit Readers

It all started with the Summer of Jest, which was preceded by Infinite Summer.... So much summer in the middle of a wretched winter. What gives?

Jenny sits down at the Reading Envy Pub with two friends from a book group called the Misfit Readers - Marco Morelli and Averi Dylan. They discuss origins of the group, what we read, how we read, and what it means to each of us.

Who is our patron saint? You'll have to listen to find out!

  1. Fantastic episode and probably my favorite one you've done so far. Misfit Readers sounds like a wonderful group that has enriched all of your lives. It is great to hear about people using the internet in a positive way instead of the way so many seem to use it.

    1. Thanks Ty. This has been one of my favorite episodes too! Such a treat to have met such deep readers. (And thanks for listening!)
