The Bookrageous Podcast!

Like books? Excited about books? PASSIONATE about books? Well, so are we.

This weekend, Rebecca Schinsky, Jenn Northington and I launched the Bookrageous podcast. As we explain in our first episode, the podcast is a place for us to get excited about books, as well as discuss all the fun, positive things going on in the world of books, reading, blogging and publishing.

Though we launched the podcast this weekend, it is far from the only aspect of Bookrageous. Bookrageous  is also a Tumblr page, a Twitter account and a Formspring profile. The first major Bookrageous project – an 18-month calendar featuring pin-ups of book lovers – goes to print in just a few days.

Bookrageous is people who love books (and don’t take them too seriously) and want to share that passion with the world. Nothing more, nothing less. Keep an eye on bookrageous.tumblr.com and the Bookrageous Twitter page for updates and future projects. In the meantime, check out the first episode of the podcast! A player is embedded below (along with show notes), but you can also check the show out on the Bookrageous Podbean page, directly from the RSS feed, or subscribe via iTunes.
