OverDrive's Reading Resolutions

| E:190

In today's episode, Adam and Jill sit down with their OverDrive co-workers and former podcast guests to discuss what their reading resolutions for 2018 are! For some, it's a number of books, for others it's the type of books they are reading. We also hear how everyone plans on keeping track of what they read, be it Goodreads, a notebook, and of course there is Jill's classic spreadsheet.

Find us on Twitter @ProBookNerds or email us at professionalbooknerds @ overdrive.com to share your own reading resolutions!
