Reading Envy 163: Fainting Goats with Lauren

If you're a fan of the show, you have already heard the episode with Lauren and Jenny recommending books for Women in Translation month. We recorded this episode earlier in the summer but still talk quite a bit about regional book goals, translated works, and the wonder of lingering in a place through our reading. This is the first posting of this episode, Jenny was just rearranging the furniture a bit behind the scenes, so when Lauren says "last month" she means June and not July. Don't trip over that table!
