Professional Book Nerds
About This Show
We're not just book nerds. We're professional book nerds! We are staff librarians who work at OverDrive, the leading app for eBooks and audiobooks from public libraries and schools. It's our job to discuss books all day long so we thought, "Why not share the conversation!" Hear about the best books we've read, get recommendations, and learn about the hottest books coming out that we can't wait to dive into. Every title discussed is available to borrow through public libraries. Get started reading at overdrive.com and subscribe to our podcast today!

Ep. #61 - Horror Reads for Adults
2 days ago
This week Jill is not only back from her witchy work visit to Massachusetts, she's sitting down with Rachel K. and Quinton to discuss some of their favorite horror novels (and she tries her hardest to not spend the entire episode mentioning Stephen King). Last week was all about YA horror reads and this week it's about adult horror. From classics like Edgar Allen Poe to contemporary authors such as Joe Hill, Rachel, Jill, and Quinton discuss why they love the genre so much and what, exactly, makes a horror novel a horror novel.
