Welcome to the latest episode of The Readers, this week Simon is sick so he only manages half an episode, yet it is a corker as Thomas and Simon make a big exciting announcement and then Thomas and his lovely friend Frances take a trip to a ‘free’ bookshop.
Catching Up () Simon is sick so it is quite a brief catch up where they discuss how they are getting on with their Books on the Nightstand Bingo cards, the final eight Fiction Uncovered winners, Simon being on the radio (some catch up episodes here) and then he explains why he needs to get better for quite an amazing reading retreat next week in The Shard.
The Readers Roadtrip () So the big news that Simon and Thomas can finally share is that this September they are going to be together again (woohoo) and doing a road trip (double woohoo) to Booktopia Petoksey (triple woohoo) they discuss where they are heading to and what you would like them to do while they are on it, and what you would like them to record.
Thomas and Frances Go Free Bookshopping () In the second part of the show Thomas goes on a road trip of sorts with Frances of Nonsuch Book to a free bookshop. They discuss their hopes before they get there and then catch up about how they get in. They talk all sorts of bookish loveliness.
Next time on the Readers () Thomas and Simon will be back in two weeks with more book based banter and some exciting news… Next week Simon returns with You Wrote The Book where his special guest is Kate Grenville.
