What To Read In October

Gayle and Nicole discuss new October releases they are looking forward to reading, and – surprise! – a lot of them are nonfiction! (And not all of the nonfiction ones are Nicole’s picks.) We also discuss where the expression “the old college try” came from, announce a fun giveaway for our podcast listeners (calling all Jojo Moyes fans!) and check in on our (non)progress on our 2019 reading challenges.
