Happy Saturday Bloglandia!

Just in case you missed it, this week over on The Book Owl Podcast I took a little drive down memory lane as I explored the story behind the bookmobile. It was an enjoyable little ride, so much so that I didn’t want to get off, so I also shared some wonderful stories about how people from Colombia to Italy are making sure books get into the hands of hungry book worms.

It was a fun episode to research and record, and I just know that if you love books and libraries, you’re going to love listening to this one!

  1. Ok, I really enjoyed the episode but since I listened I’ve been tormented by curiosity about which one novel was deemed worthy of being included in the American Library School set of books! 😂


    1. Yay!! Glad you liked it. I think the book was The Swiss Family Robinson, but I’m not 100% sure about that. Wouldn’t be my first choice, but they don’t consult me on these things… :)) Thanks for listening!!!


  2. Oh I never miss The Book Owl Podcast! I subscribe! This was another wonderful episode and I remember the Bookmobile! You are my fellow book nerd/geek 🙂
