Special Holiday Bonus: Less Terrible Book Club 2023 - Episode XX

76 minutes

It's winter holiday time again, so you all get a little gift from TBC!

Please enjoy this special edition of Less Terrible Book Club. People often wonder what else we’re reading in a given year so we figured it was worth a brief discussion and rating of our Non-TBC reads from 2023.

We wish you a lovely winter and/or holiday time if that's what you get up to at this time of year! See you soon for Season 9. Hail Terriblo.
