Better Than The Movie

...because the book normally is!

Better Than The Movie is a podcast for people who love reading diversely, books, book news, and issues related to literacy and popular culture. Our goal is to review and discuss book themes with passion and an open mind. We want to encourage our readers to look beyond the best sellers lists and  discover new voices and stories. 

We are The Readers, the people who the publishing world should be catering to, but oftentimes  don't . We are smart. We are funny. We are sometimes a little snarky. And we always, ALWAYS, think that the book is better than the movie


EPISODE 8.5: Tampa, FLAW-duh

This was the very first episode of the podcast we recorded way back when. Please excuse the sounds of Jeanette typing at random intervals, LOL! We spend the majority of the hour discussing Tampa by Alissa Nutting. Borne of seeing a story of a former classmate in the news, Nutting's novel takes a look at a predatory nature of one female middle school teacher who uses her classroom as a way to feed her perversion.
