We're back for one last podcast in 2011, and we're talking about the ridiculousness threshold, why hyperbole is so common in some books, and why that threshold varies for different readers depending on genre. We also talk about the point at which we can no longer accept character or plot insanity and just can't enjoy the book anymore.
We also talk a bit about books that we love and at the time of recording were reading. So it's a bit in the past but hey, good book recs never go stale.
The music this week was provided by Sassy Outwater, who accosts musicians on the street and finds us . This week's music is called “The Naughty Step” and it's by Peatbog Faeries from their new CD Dust. You can find them at their website, or at iTunes.
We've featured this song in a prior podcast, but this is by far the most popular of the music we've featured based on listener feedback. We'll have new podcasts, more improvements in sound quality (bit by bit anyway) and more music in 2012, so fear not.
As usual, here's the list of books we talk about in the podcast:

Yes, the episodes are still all out of order – I have NO idea why – but if you note we've numbered the episodes while I try to figure out what the hell iTunes wants now to make them display in order.
