A weekly podcast focused on BTS, through the lens of books about the group...one chapter at a time. Hosted by a university librarian (aka, BTS Bookworm) whose appreciation for BTS was born, not through the group's music, choreo, or all-around good looks, but through books. If you love BTS & love books too, this is the podcast for you! Email: [email protected] Also on Facebook!
