By Jill Grunenwald, a Librarian, Collection Development Specialist and host of the Professional Book Nerds Podcast

Working in the book business, we here at OverDrive looooove books. Being an active reader helps us do our jobs better, especially here in the Collection Development department because it means that when we build carts in your account or create recommended list, you can be assured it’s coming from people knowledgeable about reading trends.

Really, though, part of why we love working for OverDrive is specifically because we love books and talking about what we’ve read, which is why a few weeks ago we started the Professional Book Nerds podcast!

Over Christmas we released our second episode, in which I was joined by my fellow staff librarians and Analysts Liz and Kristin as we discussed superheroes, the Tudors, and zombies (not necessarily in that order).

Today we are releasing our third episode which features me as host and this time I am joined by my colleagues Todd and Sheila. You can listen in as we talk about Doritos, Dragons, and the Downton effect.

The available titles mentioned in today’s episode can be viewed and sampled here and any library partners interested in purchasing can find the titles in Marketplace. Be sure to follow OverDrive on Facebook and Twitter to stay up to date and maybe we’ll even put your recommendation request on the podcast!
