Show Notes – Best Books of 2015

Over 3 million votes were cast in the Goodreads Choice Awards: The Best Books 2015

Librarians from the Topeka and Shawnee County Public Library discuss the winners and add our own favorite reads from the past year to the categories.

This episode was so chock-full of reading recommendations that we are releasing it in two parts.

The second half of this podcast reflects the joy and excitement of librarians talking about great books!  Plus, a bit of a spoiler alert about the second part of Episode 84: instead of a Fast Five segment, we will each share 5 new things we discovered or enjoyed in 2015, including books, food and drink, television and more!

Thanks for listening!
