In this episode:
- We love to read, but the big question
we get asked his what we read. And how. Do we prefer ebooks to
paper books, or audiobooks to ebooks? So we talk about how our
collections have moved mostly digital for a number of reasons, not
the least of which is simply the clutter that buying tons of
hardcovers and paperbacks accumulate over the years.
- We discuss the benefits of smartphone
ebook apps, and how between them and audiobooks, we can get through
so many more books than we would otherwise.
- Speaking of audiobooks, we love them!
We listen to tons of different audiobooks. Void tends to use
Whispersync on Kindle to keep his place between the same book, but
Beej listens to a completely different kind of book on audio than
he reads. It’s like the formats work differently for each
- Void doesn’t like books set in the
real-world, but Beej is okay with them if they have good
- We talk a lot about comics in another
podcast, so we gloss over them here.
We love to read them, but make sure you go back and listen to our
comics episode. It really needs some love.
- And now...our favorite authors!
People ask all the time, and if we need to break it down more
specifically, we will. We talk about people like Brandon Sanderson,
John Scalzi, and Patrick Rothfuss. And more than that! If you want
deep-dives into any particular authors, let us know!
Can you guys also leave a ratings or review on iTunes? They help a
bunch, and we haven’t asked in a while. So thanks! We appreciate
