Short books, getting self-promo-y, & enjoying Spring

The three of us read a lot of books, but even as guys who really like to read, there are too many books that are just way too long. Maybe you feel the same way. So today, we’re back in the studio in Nashville to talk about some of our favorite books that are quick reads. Listen in as we discuss:

  • How do we define “short” books?
  • Are celebrity memoirs actually any good?
  • How do we really feel about the books we are “encouraged” to read by our bosses?
  • What is the best time of year to be in Nashville?
  • Who will take the title of Most-Referenced Author from Leif Enger?
  • Who is the most self-promo-y podcaster out there?
  • Should we call Conan O’Brien’s podcast hotline and invite him on our show?

As always, thanks to our sponsors:

A few of the books we discussed today:
