Episode 172: Zibby Owens – Moms Don’t Have Time to Read Books

Zibby Owens is the host of the podcast, Moms Don’t Have Time to Read Books. She puts out a daily show where she interviews authors. Daily?!?! What! She is also the owner of a local book shop Zibby Media. She hosts retreats and book clubs. Right now, she is touring because her new book Blank just came out! She is also the author of a memoir called Bookends: A Memoir of Love, Loss, and Literature. She also has her own publishing house – how cool is that!?

I’m so fascinated by the fact that she really launched this career after she turned 40 and got divorced. I love hearing success stories of people on different timelines! This is such a good reminder to keep chasing your dreams.

Of course this podcast is FULL of great book recommendations.
