At the end of Season 2, our hosts unboxed some advanced reader copies of new books and assigned one to each other. In this episode our hosts are back from hiatus with their homework. It took the dark humor of a lesbian atheist with a penchant for death, but we finally got genuine laughs out of Chris. After reading Everyone in This Room Will Someday…

So, what *is* a beach read? Our hosts debate the definitions and give examples of what they think perfect beach reads would be. Their best conclusion is that a beach read is anything that you would read at the beach (or a location you'd prefer to the beach). More specifically, whatever type of book is relaxing to you. Our hosts conclude with a robu…
 
Movie and television adaptions of books are pretty popular. In this episode, our hosts discuss what works and which ones just don't. We discuss how adaptions that are too close to the book tend to bore us because they do not add anything. There are also times when the adaptions are so different you feel like it is unfair to compare them. This episo…
 
Being a genre reader doesn't make you a bad reader. Sometimes you know what you like and you just like what you like. Do the genre stickers on the spines of books help or hinder? Do they stop you from reading something you might otherwise pick-up? Not all books fit neatly into one specific genre. Sometimes the only way you find out about books out …

We've all read titles that forced us out of our comfort zone. These books encouraged The Bookmark Team to step out of their usual reading 'box'. Chris not only read a romance, he read a disturbing tale that reminded him of Heathers. We did mention Chris read a ROMANCE, right? Autumn surprised us with a "well-written and not dry" business management…
 
Sometimes things are just not quite like they're supposed to be. Sometimes a clerical error sends someone into the afterlife early or a person being in the right place at the wrong time finds that their life isn't as perfect as they had assumed.

Oh, and you can't forget the coffee and Keanu Reeves. The Bookmark podcast is your place to fin…
 
Family defines who we are and what we're willing to do for each other. Sometimes family means everything, including jail. Not knowing who your family is sometimes means not knowing oneself.

IKEA is deceptive. Things that seem so easy to pick out or put together turn out to be way more complex than we could have imagined. These books aren't as simple to piece together as you might think, which makes them all the more delightfully challenging. Bring your lingonberries and follow this journey or get lost in translation. Don't miss golden…
 
Ever feel like you don't quite belong? Or maybe you can't get something to fit in with others. Sometimes you're expected to be part of a culture by default and you can't help but just be a square peg in a round hole.
