Brad & Liz have prepared notes for this episode and they're not afraid to use them ... provided Liz can get her phone to work!
Recorded a couple of weeks after an epochal election that is not so much as mentioned! Not avoided ... just never comes up. These are Books Professionals.
Topics include: Franzen(??); publisher consolidation; the "Chronicles of Dark-Sided Bookselling" (vis-à-vis bookstore-themed candles & the big business of threatening to go out of business).
