It's a good day to listen to a podcast about the best books of 2019

Chris Schluep on December 09, 2019


We just released our podcast on the Best Books of 2019. Whether you like to listen to your books, or read them on Kindle or paper, here's a podcast for all you book lovers out there.

Our Best Books of the Year feature is something the Amazon editors look forward to all year. It's always in the back of our minds. Any time we pick up a book, we are wondering is this the one?

But choosing the Best Books is not the only thing we do, and we talked a little on the podcast about our jobs as editors. Someday we might dedicate an entire podcast to that subject, but you can learn a little bit more about us in this one.

Plus, Seira Wilson talked to New York Times technology reporter Mike Isaac about his book Super Pumped: The Battle for Uber, which is a roller coaster of a business tale. And we started playing a game called "is it real, or is it from a book?"
