Ep 435: A deep dive through a massive TBR

Today’s guest is a native Parisian who is planning a road trip this summer to the northern Alps of Italy to escape the Summer Olympics. Corinne Yan is here today to get Anne’s help in discovering great audiobooks to pair with this long drive.

But before diving into recommendations, Anne and Corinne chat about Corinne’s dreamy book job: she works as a book restorer at the oldest French public library, the Bibliothèque Mazarine. Corinne’s work allows her to restore a wide range of documents, from 78 CE papyri to Middle Age religious manuscripts to 19th century Napoleon caricatures.

In addition to crafting Corinne’s summer audiobook list, she and Anne chat about Corinne’s To Be Read list, which has more than 1,700 titles on it right now. Anne has ideas for how Corinne might be able to balance the occasional reread of beloved books with the intentional pursuit of new-to-her reading experiences as she strikes some titles off of this massive list.
