Professional Book Nerds

We're not just book nerds. We're professional book nerds! We are staff librarians who work at OverDrive, the leading app for eBooks and audiobooks from public libraries and schools. It's our job to discuss books all day long so we thought, "Why not share the conversation!" Hear about the best books we've read, get recommendations, and learn about the hottest books coming out that we can't wait to dive into. Every title discussed is available to borrow through public libraries. Get started reading at overdrive.com and subscribe to our podcast today!

On today's show we welcome in Mallory O'Meara, author and cohost of the wonderful Reading Glasses podcast on the Maximum Fun network! Mallory is, in our opinion, THE person to go to when you're looking for horror book recommendations. So now that October has arrived we HAD to bring her on. Our chat is all about the horror books she loves, both truly terrifying and others that are less so. We offer recommendations for everyone, regardless of your fright level.

 

ALSO: Mallory has written a book called The Lady from the Black Lagoon that comes out March 5th and you can recommend it to your library or preorder it right now. It tells the true story of Milicent Patrick, the only woman in history to create one of Hollywood's classic movie monsters and we can't wait to read it.

 

After you check out this episode be sure to subscribe to Reading Glasses as well. It's a phenomenal, weekly chat about everything in the book world between Mallory and her co-host Brea Grant. They are a Thursday release friend so you can enjoy both our shows together where they belong.
