The old gang is back together! Meredith, Brian, Jason, and Melody are chatting about books and travel – destinations they want to visit because of a book or places they’ve actually visited due to reading. They’re also talking about movie adaptations of popular books. Of course, they’ll share ideas of lots of other great books and materials to enjoy.
