Bookbabble Episode 38: He’s Still Not Crying
Recorded 13 July 2009
Babblers: Gem, Renee, Marcel, Donny

Synopsis:
You probably won’t know who Marcel is, who joined us a couple of episodes back.  But as we’re time traveling at the moment with Donny being behind on a couple episodes, suffice it to know that Marcel is *one of us*, and as with the other babblers, will dazzle you with his profound knowledge and book geekiness.  The group discusses what was read in the Bookbabble hiatus period, and goes from classics to accidental forays into fantasy to anime and other good stuff.
