FBR Cast: 004 – Judging A Book By Its Cover

Cover image of The Eye of the World.Episode 4 is in, I’m drinking wine again (I see a trend developing here…) and Josh is hitting the energy drinks. In this weeks episode we talk about The Hobbit becoming a trilogy, Neil Gaiman’s American Gods coming to HBO, and Brandon Sanderson finishing the final book in the Wheel of Time series. We also look at book covers, whether they are a dying art, and what our favourites are.
