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



This week we cover a cornucopia of topics! From discussing the impact of Jackie Collins on the literary world to Grace Jones' memoir to writing from the outside, our news section is brimming with content. Links to articles discussed below. Our main segment is about upcoming books that we're anticipating reading. As always we end the show with our What Are You Reading? segment and introduce a new reader interactive segment.
