It’s hot in the Bay Area so we have to keep this episode short before Veronica melts. And a good thing too or she might have kept adding books! We not only kick off T.H. White’s The Once and Future King but Veronica adds a second book as well.

Love the podcast and the book discussions! After hearing one of you mention it on one of Leo Laporte’s shows I have gotten back into reading and really enjoy the new kindle also. I’ve read a few of the previous books, World War Z and Bitter seeds, and they were really good. I’ll suggest Boneshaker by Cherie Preist. The story is quite good. I don’t have a suggestion for a more “sword” focused book so I await the options as there will likely be a few good suggestions. Keep up the great work!
