Welcome to the latest episode of The Readers. This fortnight there may be a little less of Thomas than normal. Don’t fret though because Simon is joined by Thomas at the top and tail end of the show and then podcast royalty in the middle as Ann Kingman and Michael Kindness of Books on the Nightstand join him in answering some questions from some of you. What a special episode hey?

The Readers on the Nightstand () In a very special middle section of the show, after he has chatted to Thomas and told him all about the delights of Booktopia, you get to hear the second half of a conversation between Simon and the podcast royalty that are Ann and Michael from Books on the Nightstand. The three of them answer more questions from the lovely people of Booktopia (including E Lockhart) which they hope you will enjoy. You can also hear the three of them come up with a reading challenge that Thomas will add to at the end of the show. DONT FORGET TO HEAD TO BOOKS ON THE NIGHTSTAND FOR PART ONE. Thank you…


A Challenge & Books You Think We Might Not Read () In a quick final section of the show, Thomas adds his title to the list of books that Ann, Michael, Simon and himself will be reading as each others favourite books. They also have a chat about some of the books that people might not think that they would read as inspired by Eric when he learned Simon likes Batman and superheros in general at Booktopia.

Books mentioned in this show () Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier, The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell, Any Human Heart by William Boyd, Swann by Carol Shields, Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn, We Were Liars by E. Lockhart, Alex by Pierre Lemaitre, The Firm by John  Grisham, Why Didn’t They Ask Evans? by Agatha Christie, The Martian by Andy Weir, The Explorer by James Smythe
