You Should Read: Books from a Baltimore/DC Bookstore Tour (With Bekki Fahrer!)
Show Notes

Hi, Should-Heads! We spent last Friday going to some of the bookstores in Baltimore and DC! (There are a bunch we missed, so hopefully there will be a part two the next time Rachael comes to Baltimore!) We visited five bookstores and were joined by Kindred Spirit of the Pod Bekki Fahrer for three of them. It was a great day and became a Very Expensive Friday.
