Where Readers and Writers Meet

Books That Will Change Your Life from Our Friends at Just The Right Book!

in Podcasts by

In many of Roxanne Coady’s podcasts, she has posed the question, “What is the book that changed your life?” Roxanne has found that, many of the names of the books that guests will offer, are poignant and personal in some way, and as she says, “inevitably they become a list of books that you are dying to read.”

That’s why today, on a special edition of Just the Right Book Podcast, we offer you some favorite stories that have been collected over the past forty episodes! We have 25 new suggestions for you to take a look at if you are looking to start a new book over the Labor Day Weekend.
