Podcast Episode 78: Deep Backlist Books with Catherine from @gilmoreguide

Deep Backlist Books

In Episode 78, Catherine Gilmore (@gilmoreguide) and I go deep into our backlists to share some of our favorite older books we haven’t talked about in a long time!

This post contains affiliate links (plus: here’s your Amazon Smile-specific affiliate link), through which I make a small commission when you make a purchase (at no cost to you!).


  • Catherine’s take on why classics are so long.
  • A book that totally shocked both of us when we read it years ago, but we wonder if would shock as much today given other books and movies that have come out since.
  • Our inverse initial experiences with Anna Quindlen.
  • Sarah’s “unicorn” book.
