Announcing our New Project: The Library of Lost Time

Announcing our New Project: The Library of Lost Time

Friday, 8 April, 2022

Sure, you probably have important things to do. But with The Library of Lost Time, it takes just five minutes to learn about two new awesome books and something fascinating about the world.

Step into The Library of Lost Time, a weekly video and podcast that makes procrastination a virtue. In each mini-episode — 5 minutes or less! — we share two new book releases that are at the top of our TBR. Then we delve into a book- or travel-related curiosity that’s worth your time.

Here’s our first video episode!

We’re really excited about this… for reasons!

Weekly updates! Your number one request in our audience surveys has always been ‘We want more stuff from Strong Sense of Place’ — and that makes us blush with happiness. So now we’ll be releasing new goodies to you every week: The Strong Sense of Place podcast will continue every other Monday, and The Library of Lost Time will be out every Friday.

New books! In the Strong Sense of Place show, we recommend a mix of backlist and new books. But there are so many great new books with a strong sense of place. The Library of Lost Time will tell you about two new books every week.

Curious finds! On Fridays on the blog, we share fascinating book- and travel-related things in our Endnotes posts. Think of the The Library of Lost Time as an addendum to Endnotes that goes a little deeper into one very cool thing that makes a little procrastination all good.
