We (Paige and Jennifer) are two librarians and archivists who love books. Big surprise there. Shocking, really. We met on the job and started talking about books when we were supposed to be working in the appropriately named Reading Room. Things we loved, things we hated, things we found problematic. Somehow it always ended with Jennifer saying, “I could talk about books for hours,” and that’s when she first had the brilliant idea to con Paige into starting a podcast. Just like that, the bookish podcast Big Book Energy was born.
Hopefully these conversations are just as entertaining to you as we find them to be, addressing how books were, are, and will continue to be relevant to our every day lives. By opening a store on Bookshop, we hope to give our listeners an opportunity to support us and the cause of small, independent booksellers everywhere. All hail the mighty codex! We’re glad you’re along for the ride.
