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 THREE: Diversity or Nah?

In this week's episode we begin with a tribute to a fallen friend, Borders Books & Music. We also unpack our feelings about the #WeNeedDiverseBooks movement. We discuss everything from the genesis of the movement to our suggestions to those who need a nudge in the right direction when it comes to reading diversely.
