Books from a Non-Human Perspective

Books and Bites Podcast, Episode 58

JCPL librarians bring you book recommendations and discuss the bites and beverages to pair with them.

On this episode, we discuss the tenth prompt in the Books and Bites 2021 Reading Challenge, books from a non-human perspective. We share plenty of options for this challenge, with books from the point of view of a vampire, a pacifist dragon, a robot, and more. Plus, our Adult Outreach Librarian Peri Conley stops by to talk about her love of The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka. more: Books from a Non-Human Perspective

How To Do Anything

Books and Bites Podcast, Episode 57

JCPL librarians bring you book recommendations and discuss the bites and beverages to pair with them.

On this episode, we discuss the ninth prompt in the Books and Bites 2021 Reading Challenge, a nonfiction how-to book. The library has books about how to do just about anything, as our selections demonstrate. We suggest books about learning how to ghost hunt, fix our democracy, and more—there's even a book about how to do nothing (hint: the title is a little misleading). more: How To Do Anything
