Lacy, manager of indie bookstore Rock City Books, joins Josh, Rebecca and Jenn to talk about our very long "what we're reading" lists and 2011 reading resolutions. We also look into our magic 8-balls to predict what this year might hold for books and publishing.
Note: Due to some scheduling snafus, Jenn had to duck out for the resolutions / predictions segment. That's why she's in the first half of the show, gone for a bit, then back at the very end.
