October’s 2020 Summer Reading and Podcast List

They say reading gives us a place to go when we have to stay where we are. This phrase has never been more true than now. COVID-19 has forced us to stay home in lockdown for months. We are sure many of you have already watched every TV show and movie on Netflix, however, today, as we have been doing since 2017, we would like to help you travel from home.

Our team has gathered a list of books and podcasts that will help you disconnect from your living room and take you new places.

Get your passport ready and open one of these books.
