This is our final podcast for our launch series, and I hope you’ve been enjoying the conversations. If you’re an iOS user, you can now find us in the iTunes directory. Also, please consider leaving a rating or review for the podast. This helps us in two ways:

1. It will make us happy! (Yes, even if it’s just to tell us we suck. Because you cared enough to listen!) I promise to read out every review in the next episode. :)

2. The more ratings and reviews we get the more likely iTunes will recommend it to other listeners who search for book podcasts. This applies to other podcasts, so if you love other shows, please rate and review them, too!

We talk about a lot of books in this show, so hold on to your buy lists!
