Reading With Robin on Just Jenny!


I had the best time chatting books with Just Jenny’s  Jenny Hutt! You can catch Jenny’s show Monday-Friday from 6-8pm eastern on Sirius XM 109. I’ve been a fan since I first heard that familiar Long Island love and the enthusiasm and humor that Jenny brings to every show and subject.

In which I try to mention as many of my summer ’16 favorites as possible all while remembering that breathing during an interview is preferred. How many titles did I mention? First one with the right answer wins! (a book, duh!)

Comment below. Enjoy!

    Now I have to go look up Nancy Pearl’s equation. Your interviews are always so fun and always manage to veer into so many unique things. Figuring out the number of titles is really difficult. Without listening to the interview a second time and including only the titles that you mentioned first, my guess is twelve or thirteen if Are You There God, It’s Me Margaret counts which I don’t think it does. If you include titles that Jenny mentions first then that number would increase by seven. It is interesting to see the other guesses and I’m curious to find out what number you counted.

      I counted 8, unless you count the 2 memoirs. Then it would be 10. I do believe when she asked for the must read books of the summer, that you said 8 titles, 1 of which was The Light Of Paris, which I can’t wait to read. Great podcast!

      Hi Kimberly! Thanks for tuning in! Here is Nancy Pearl’s take on putting down a book-

      “Rule of Fifty”

      People frequently ask me how many pages they should give a book before they give up on it. In response to that question, I came up with my “rule of fifty,” which is based on the shortness of time and the immensity of the world of books. If you’re fifty years of age or younger, give a book fifty pages before you decide to commit to reading it or give it up. If you’re over fifty, which is when time gets even shorter, subtract your age from 100—the result is the number of pages you should read before making your decision to stay with it or quit. Since that number gets smaller and smaller as we get older and older, our big reward is that when we turn 100, we can judge a book by its cover!

      LOL – I didn’t count. I figured I’d leave that to you 🙂
