Just who are ‘The Readers’…
Gavin Pugh is a Welsh born and bred lover of all things booky. This is all Terry Pratchet’s fault. Gavin fell in love with Terry’s Discworld witches and has stopped being addicted to books since. While studying Creative and Professional Writing in University (where he got a 2:1) he started blogging about books and has done off and on for the last over the last 6 years.
Thanks to blogging he has read and been introduced to some amazing writers and book lovers. He currently blogs at GavReads.co.uk.
He’s excited to be podcasting as not only does it means he gets to have a book geeking chat with Simon but to share all the books he’s come across that week.
As for what books he likes. He’s a huge fan of SFF & Crime. And over the coming weeks he’s going to see if he can turn Simone to the geek-side.
Simon Savidge is a man in his late twenties who hails from the Peak District where he comes from a long line of Book Lovers. Due to the influences of his Gran and Mum at an early age he became a book-a-holic (something English Literature at school nearly destroyed).
He now writes Savidge Reads to stop boring everyone he meets who may not be a book addict with tales, fact and reviews of books he has read, wants to read or you must read. He splits his time between Manchester and London which means lots of space for lots of shelves overflowing with books.
When he is not deeply engrossed in a book or writing blogs he has work to do as a London Editor for a UK wide magazine, co-founder of The Green Carnation Prize and Bookmarked Literary Salon. He is very, very excited about ‘The Readers’ and making Gavin ‘go literary’.
