56.5 - Bookstores Against Borders and Book News

This week's mini has some themed book news.

  • What's an embargo? You're about to find out.

  • Big companies bum us out, but we keep punching up until we reach the obvious ending.

  • And Corinne traveled all the way to Madison, Wi to talk with Gretchen at A Room of One's Own Books about Bookstores Against Borders and how bookstores make your community.

We lied in the episode and said that next week we'd be reading Notes of a Crocodile by Qiu Miaojin, which we'll actually be reading in a couple more weeks. NEXT week we'll be discussing Trick Mirror by Jia Tolentino.
