Episode 33: Irish Thoroughbred

Irish Thoroughbred is Nora Roberts' first book - we wanted to see where one of the richest, most popular authors around got her start.  Well.  It is something. Adelia lives in 16th century Ireland and has lost everything, so she gets on a plane to 1980 and becomes a horse trainer!  Horse girl alert: THIS IS NOT A HORSE GIRL BOOK.  I have read a lot, you guys, a lot of books with horse races in them and I can assure you that these horse races are the least exciting horse races in the world.  Nora.  Please.


So Travis is the boring-ass romance novel dude who's always throwing her up against walls and stuff and he owns everything including the house she lives in, so that's just great.  There's a sham marriage, there's a rape attempt, there's some seriously weird Irish stereotyping... at least there's a shopping montage! We do have a special treat for you - two different Rounds brothers get to talk about horse racing and horse drinking in this episode! An inausp…

Who are we?

We're two shit-disturbers from Columbia, South Carolina who love books and booze and talking over each other.  We met in a post-election fury and continue to agitate, take no shit, and drink heavily while reading the news.

Courtney is a Technical Librarian by way of a master’s degree in Public History. She has been obsessed with romance novels since she stole them off her Mamaw’s nightstand. She is a loud talker, likes the color pink, enjoys cheap wine, and thinks music festivals are dumb. She also is scared of bears, loves Dolly Parton and Reese Witherspoon, and is a Basic Southern bitch minus the racism and White Shoulders.

Sara is a Research and Readers' Advisory Librarian with a master's degree in Library and Information Science.  She once came in second on Jeopardy! but it was after Alex Trebek shaved off his mustache so she isn't sure if that counts. She is unafraid of bears as long as they are South Carolina bears; none of that west coast ursine shit.  She dresses like a lumberjack on vacation but owns more than one set of pearls and a lot of personalized stationery.
