    You can read books too? They aren’t just for zoom backgrounds? Neat.

    Its great to see people reading . So many people just don’t do it anymore. It’s like a lost art ever since the advent of the cell phone and the internet.

    I’m reading “Hernando de Soto” right now. It’s about the holocaust perpetrated by the Spanish in the Americas.

    Geez…. There are so many great books out there. Joe Abercrombie and Brian Mcclellan are fantastic dark fantasy writers. Truly a great time for Grim-dark and Flintlock fantasy. I love the southern gothics of Michael McDowell.
    Shout out to Brandi…. Love love love her tunes and hope to catch her and the twins this summer somewhere. I can’t wait to get out to some shows again. Also, so many hard working guys and gals who work on the road crews have been devistated financially by this pandemic. I really hope that we can get things under control so these folks can get back to doing what they do. Hope to see y’all soon Ms. Brandi. Peace and much love to y’all.

    “The Alchemist” is ok, but not as great as everyone says. You’re fine, Brandi.

    Love this! Thanks you!

    With all the political books aways being highlighted on this show, this is a total breath of fresh air and would love to see it done more often 😁

    It’d be awesome to have one focused on indie and small press authors, though – especially bipoc and lgbt+ indie/small press authors as they have the hardest time.

    Getting to see one of my fellow indie/small press authors get a shout-out and a chance to succeed big time would be awesome. 😁

    A songwriter/storyteller as good as Brandi HAS to be an avid reader. There just is no way around that fact. And this segment is proof of that fact. (as opposed to say, John Cena, who is so obviously such a stranger to the printed word that he had to read book names off of his cellphone).

    Oh, honey, if you loved Educated so much, maybe actually read it for the content. Westover has multiple siblings with PhDs, some of which got theirs BEFORE her. Her family owns one of the largest essential oil businesses in the world, and many of the stories have been refuted or are flat-out lies. The book is a mish-mash of poverty- and trauma-porn, and leaves out so many details that would have made it make sense, just to make Westover’s story more dramatic than it actually was. Do better, really.

    Do any of these people, perhaps, have books that they have read in another _language?_
