Welcome to season two of By the Book! Jolenta and Kristen are kicking things off with the new book Bored and Brilliant, by Manoush Zomorodi. Join the ladies as they delete their favorite apps, commute without their phones, and even watch a pot of water boil - all in the hopes of discovering whether disconnecting from their phones can spark brilliant ideas.
We love hearing from you! Call us at 505-510-BOOK, firstname.lastname@example.org, @jolentag, @kristenmeinzer, or @bythebookpod. And if you haven't already, please join our By The Book Facebook community!
