Wrap Up Your Reading

Books and Bites Podcast, Ep. 72

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

If you’re participating in the Books and Bites 2022 Reading Challenge, it’s time to wrap up your reading! On this episode of the podcast, we discuss the books we read for the twelfth and final prompt, read whatever you want.

If you’ve completed ten of the reading challenge prompts, turn your entry forms in at the library or online for a chance to win a Kindle Paperwhite or a $100 gift card to Joseph-Beth Booksellers.

Book & Bite Notes

Michael recommends She Rides Shotgun by Jordan Harper. As you accompany Nate and Polly through the streets of LA and the deserts of California, enjoy a street taco from Nicholasville’s own El Rancho Taqueria

Carrie’s pick is The Wrong End of the Telescope by Rabih Alammedine. Pair this novel with a cup of Cardamom Green Tea and a batch of Crunchy Sesame Cookies. Both recipes are from Rose Water & Orange Blossoms: Fresh and Classic Recipes from My Lebanese Kitchen by Maureen Abood.

Jacqueline enjoyed Veil of Winter by Melanie Dickerson. A warm cocoa drink with a hint of peppermint is the perfect companion for this book’s winter setting. Find the recipe for Vegan Peppermint Drinking Chocolate at Minimalist Baker.
