Surprise! Librarians love books and love to talk about books! So a few of your local librarians at the Alameda County Library have created a new podcast: Read On!

The first episode has just hit the airwaves. Click here to find it.

In Episode 1, we answer the burning questions. Is it possible to rewrite Jane Austen? Can you turn an edgy memoir into a network sitcom? And just what is so great about Hemingway, anyway?

I asked two of our frequent patrons what books they would recommend to others. Here’s what they told me…

CL said, “I can’t choose favorites, but three authors whose stories seem to stick with me are John Irving, Nick Hornby, and Charles Dickens.”

Ann said, “Insane City by Dave Barry is the funniest book I ever read.”
