Simon and Thomas are back to discuss the serendipity of some reads and also Book University.
Serendipitous Reads () Simon and Thomas have been asked by listener Daisy Baker if they could talk about the serendipitous reads they have read recently. Thomas managed, Simon, has had to go back in time and into the potential future.
Book University () Thomas likes to play the game of ‘what if’ and so he came up with the idea of three terms at Book University. He and Simon get to choose three bookish lessons they would like to learn or subjects they would like to learn about, where they would like to learn it and who they would like to teach them. The results are surprising.
