We think the whole world is probably looking forward to the end of 2020 but Jayne and Paula have fun taking a glance back at what they read and loved (and didn't love!) over this crazy year. They also look at what our borrowers were borrowing this year, both fiction and non-fiction, and then discuss what they are excited to read in 2021.

The duo also announce that in 2021 they want YOU to be a part of the show! Post on our library Facebook page or in the Literary Anything Facebook group all of your burning questions, comments or suggestions and they'll read them out and talk about them on the podcast. Or record yourself using your phone app and email it to us at [email protected]
