We’re closing in on the end of our Civilians Read competition and another book gets the axe today. In today’s podcast we talk books in schools, great characters, Ann-Marie MacDonald’s particular brand of emotional abuse, and how Nic’s never been a sister. Oh, and we forget to plug in the mic post-confessional — but hey, we warned you this would be rough and tumble.
Listen in! [Running Time 24:06]
After another elimination, more debate, and certainly more wine, another confessional:
And here’s another chance to scour (some of) my bookshelves, plus Nic’s thousand words on Good to a Fault:
Thanks again for tuning in, and don’t miss our thrilling conclusion tomorrow! It’s pretty exciting stuff. You might even pee a little.
We’ve reached Day 3 of our Civilians Read competition and it’s elimination time. Yes, my friends, by a vote of 3-2, one of our books has been evicted from the Big Brother House, must go back to the top model home, pack her belongings and go home because the tribe has spoken (or something like that).
So today we’re going to switch things up and have the podcast first, followed by the video confessional. If you watch the confessional first, it’ll be a bit of a spoiler (though episode 3 does of course start with the reveal of the previous day’s vote).Today we talked about “Canadian-ness,” why we read, and give the panelists to call out the book that they had more fun throwing across the room than reading.
And today’s video confessional (Again, SPOILER ALERT!):
And some more exclusive behind-the-scenes action!

Last time on Civilians Read [Best to imagine Natalie saying that in her superb radio voice]. . . Our panelists each received 1 minute to convince us of the glory of their book, and also got a chance to trash other people’s. The day ended with a discussion of beginnings and all the books still a part of the competition. But today no one gets a free pass. Before we get on today’s debate and elimination vote, the second confessional, recorded after Day 1.
And now onto the competition itself. Today we’ll discuss powerful prose, riveting reads, and final impressions [Running time: 27:03].
