In a special bonus episode, we're answering a big question that we've kind of talked about in the past, but we really felt like it would be good to hit directly: What factors determine whether we buy or borrow a book?

  • What prompts us to buy a book brand-new in a brick-and-mortar bookstore—and are we part of the problem with them going under?
  • What books we'll borrow from the library
  • How the library is really useful for audiobook consumption
  • Why we don't like borrowing books from people (or loaning them for that matter)

As always, thanks to Lagares Roasters for partnering with us to make the Table of (mal)Contents blend. Pick up a bag (or 12) today.
