Welcome back to Papercuts, our monthly books podcast hosted by Louisa Kasza, Jenna Todd and Kiran Dass.
In this episode we give advice on how to tackle the ever growing tower that is the ‘To Be Read’ pile, discuss a recent release that didn’t quite hit the spot, and bring you our usual book reviews and raves. As always, you can email us at email@example.com and follow us on Twitter and Instagram: @papercutspod.
Thanks to The Spinoff and the Mātātuhi Foundation for their support.
