I’ve heard Mark on Quirky Nomads from time to time, but I’ve never managed to check out the podcast until now. I am so excited about finding your show! My husband and I are avid readers and book hoarders, but our collections are definitely for adults. We’re expecting our first child at the end of August, and we had been thinking we needed to start our children’s book library soon. Thank you SO MUCH for this excellent resource!
