Ep 112; We’re Back, Rebuilding Your Bookshelves From Scratch & Books and Movies…

Welcome to the latest episode of The Readers. This fortnight Thomas and Simon have had a little bit of a nightmare with recording, so if occasionally they don’t make sense, and it doesn’t end in the usual way, they apologize a gremlin seemed to be in the system. Speaking of gremlins and ghosts and ghouls Simon and Thomas discuss spooky books, the Man Booker 2014, future libraries and being locked in bookshops…

Catching Up () Having not really spoken for quite a few weeks Simon and Thomas decided they would have a quick catch up. They discuss their new jobs and how it means they are barely reading anything and Simon shares his news that he is up for the UK Blog Awards, which you can vote for here… http://www.blogawardsuk.co.uk/candidates/savidge-reads/ Please do!

Starting Your Bookshelves from Scratch () Simon pleaded for you to ask some questions for future episodes of The Readers, and we still want you to keep them coming, Laura came up with a corker – though it also slightly scared Thomas and Simon. What would you do if your house was flooded or burnt down and you had to start your book collection from scratch? You might be surprised when you hear their responses…


Books and Films () You have been asking for months and months for Simon and Thomas to discuss books and film adaptations, so now they finally are. They discuss the adaptations that they have loved almost as much as the book, shockingly some that they have loved more than the book and those they have really really loathed.

Next time on the Readers () Thomas and Simon will be back in two weeks with more book based banter. Before then Simon will be back next Wednesday with guest Sarah Perry for the latest You Wrote The Book! (which if you missed the last one was with David Nicholls) and back with Gavin, Rob and Kate on Frirday for Hear Read This discussing Robert Aickman’s Cold Hand in Mine and Richard Powers Orfeo one of which Simon threw across a room.
