From the Front Porch

We judge books by their covers so you don't have to. First impressions are important, but are they always right or fair? Annie and Chris talk through the 50-Page Rule, trusting your gut, changing your impression, and the importance of not reading in a vacuum. Also, recommend us to a friend!

The Leavers by Lisa Ko
Borne by Jeff VanderMeer
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
