Three Percent #146: The Conspiracy Theory Episode

An all-banter episode that touches on an array of topics, from ranking ideas on how to save indie bookstores, to The Great American Read’s (embarrassing) top 10 vote getting books (are we sure Outlanders doesn’t include people riding on dragons?), the Frankfurt Book Fair, self-censorship, QAnon + Marlins Man, a book scam, “up-lit” (barf), ALTA, random typos, and a few book and TV recommendations.
