The Book Blab: "Traveling With Books" (Episode 7 Show Notes)

You guys! Special surprise unannounced Episode 7 of The Book Blab! When I realized I was going to be in Utah with some downtime last week, I emailed Amy and said, hey, can we do an episode together? In person? We didn't know if it was going to work out until the day of, but it was so much fun to actually be in the same room talking books together. We filmed this last Friday, and tried out a new video service (Facebook instead of Blab) because it worked better with having us both in the same space. So it did not stream live here, but you can all enjoy the recorded episode and show notes below.
