And for something super-meta, here is Shawn's Goodreads shelf labeled Reading Envy Podcast Recommends.


  1. I have never even thought about reading poetry books via audiobook. Brilliant! I need to try that. This was a fascinating episode and so many interesting books to check out!

    1. One poet whose poems will never be the same once you hear him read them is Billy Collins. It practically changes the meaning of the words.

  2. I loved the books Shawn discussed. All books I haven't heard of before. Thanks for the new reads.

    1. I really want to read the Griffin and the Break novel.

  3. Yes. Looking at the list, I want to read every book discussed.
