Here & Now host Robin Young reads piles and piles of books for the show — and for pleasure.
She recently shared this photo of the stack of books beside her bed, tweeting "If new bedside reading book tower topples I'm a goner."
Robin wants to know: What are you reading?
Tell us in the comments at the bottom of this page.
As for Robin, she just read Daniel James Brown's "Boys in the Boat" in one sitting.
It tells the story of the University of Washington’s 1936 eight-oar crew — a team that transformed the sport as they pursued an Olympic gold medal.
She called it "perfect" and said "feel like I'm in a scull" after turning the last page.
