The Philosophy of the “Pool Read”
This Week on the Literary Disco Podcast
On this episode of Literary Disco, while Rider’s off camping, Tod and Julia talk about their philosophy of pool reads—and why they’ll read books at the pool that they’d never be caught reading anywhere else.
From the episode:
Tod Goldberg: At no time when I’m sitting at home have I ever—like, I have four thousand books on my bookcases. At no time when I’m reading for pleasure at home am I like, “You know what, I’m gonna find me a John Grisham novel.” Never. I have to not be wearing underpants, be by a pool, and have flip flops somewhere near me, and then it is on.
Julia Pistell: Wow. Okay. I mean it’s true, almost nothing beats a good courtroom scene, I think that’s the American in us. We like seeing our government at work.
Tod Goldberg: Or we like seeing how we can defraud our government.
