Ep 249: Who would read the dictionary for fun? (we would)
An encounter with The Baby-Sitters Club #4 Mary Anne Saves the Day launched today’s guest into a lifelong love of reading AND a special fondness for middle grade novels. Afoma Umesi is a freelance writer, editor, and children’s book blogger living in Nigeria. Anne has her work cut out for her to recommend middle grade books Afoma hasn’t read yet, plus selecting an adult title to suit her taste.
