Shelf Care, Episode #8: Shelf Isolation

All of us here at Booklist are self-isolating during the COVID-19 pandemic, and we are turning to books and movies and TV and games to keep ourselves entertained while the world . . . does whatever the world is doing. Host Susan Maguire talks to her coworkers about what media is bringing them comfort in an episode that may or may not have been an excuse to talk to her coworkers. (Weeping emoji.)
