    I am really enjoying your podcast, and like your format a lot. However, there is one thing I wish you’d do a bit differently. Would you consider setting some kind of time perimeter on the “old books?” For example, one of Hannah’s old books was “Girls Burn Brighter,” which was just published in March of 2018, barely a year ago. For those of us who don’t do a lot of advanced copy reading, that’s still considered a fairly new book, and often still has a long library wait list. It would be more helpful to hear about some older books which we might be able to obtain easier.
