Ep 101; Room 101 – Where Bad Bookish Bits Are Banished…

Welcome to the latest episode of The Readers. This fortnight Simon and Thomas show their darker side as they discuss the things that really annoy them relating to books, things that annoy them so much they would like to banish them to Room 101!

Catching Up () Simon and Thomas have had a catch up on all the things that have been going on lately. Thomas has been organising Simon’s schedule for his trip to America as well as varying other things whilst Simon is planning to jet off to Sweden on a cold crime tour…

Room 101, What Would You Banish There () As it is episode 101, and after he heard Ann from Books on the Nightstand discussing something she didn’t really like in a book, Simon decided that now was the perfect time to take The Readers to the darker side. We=ll, the more annoyed and angry side in fact, as he and Thomas discuss the bookish things that really make them cross and they would like to see banished. What do you think they could be and what would you send down there?


Books Mentioned in this Episode:

The Shock of the Fall – Nathan Filer
The Help – Kathryn Stockett
The Forsyte Saga – John Galsworthy

Next time on the Readers () Thomas and Simon will be back in two weeks with Gavin to celebrate 100 episodes of the Readers and all that book based banter. Before then Simon will be back next Tuesday with You Wrote The Book! with Emma Healey to discuss her (amazing) debut novel ‘Elizabeth is Missing’. Until next time thanks again for listening…
