Have a Bookish Question?

Ask Traci

I am so excited to be kicking off another year with my column here at Shereads.com. If you don’t know me, I am Traci Thomas, creator and host of The Stacks, which is a podcast all about, you guessed it, BOOKS! I interview authors, talk to book lovers, and even host a monthly book club. I am living the bookish dream. In addition to the podcast, I am just an avid reader who loves to proselytize my favorites to the world and match readers with books I think they’ll love.

When I first started writing for SheReads.com in 2021, I was giving you all book pairings. I’d pick three brand new releases and share two backlist titles that paired nicely with them. Then in 2022, we switched it up and I started giving bookish tips with “Advice in The Stacks” where I would answer all of your burning book questions from what to do with unsolicited book recs, to how to pick books for a book club.

Now, in 2024 we’re melding those two previous iterations of the column into something timely and really exciting.

You may have heard 2024 is a presidential election year in the United States. There are a lot of issues on the table that are being bandied about in the press from gun control to genocide, from health care to book bans. I’m going to try and help you all read toward the issues this year. Each month I will share a few books I recommend on a current topic of interest. I will be sharing both backlist gems and brand new releases. I am also open to your input on which topics you want me to cover, so please submit topics here.
