In “Library Corner” Amy recommends a few romance novels in honor of Valentine’s Day. She mentions books by Nora Roberts, Nicholas Sparks and Piper Vaughn and recommends Gail Carriger‘s The Parasol Protectorate Series. In honor of the recent Denver teacher’s strike she also recommends a lively non-fiction book entitled A History of America in 10 Strikes by Erik Loomis.
This week Dave tells an eye opening story about drug use and high school students. Andrew is stuck in a hotel room in Austin, Texas and we dive into author photos on Goodreads. We also debut a new segment with a Denver Public Librarian!

In episode 3 (our best episode to date!), our heroes, Dave, Andrew and Laura, discuss why Andrew can’t have fruit delivered to his office, why one of Dave’s students got up in the middle of class and walked out and they had spirited discussions about, well, pretty much everything including their book recommendations.
