On this week’s episode of Currently Reading, Mindy and Meredith are discussing:

  • Bookish Moments: a reading milestone and a new type of book “the quickie”

  • Current Reads: a new book from a favorite author, a childhood love turned into a book, and more!

  • Deep Dive: the seasons of life that we go through as readers

  • Book Presses: a love story and a police procedural

As per usual, time-stamped show notes are below with references to every book and resource we mentioned in this episode. If you’d like to listen first and not spoil the surprise, don’t scroll down!

New: we are now including transcripts of the episode (this link only works on the main site). These are generated by AI, so they may not be perfectly accurate, but we want to increase accessibility for our fans!
