Catching Up () This week Thomas and Simon have lots and lots to catch up on. They discuss Thomas moving blogs to Hogglestock.com, Simon teases us all with Fiction Uncovered and tells us about a book tour he has been on before thinking of how he can start a ‘send Simon to Booktopia’ in September. They also both discuss the latest craze for colouring books.

Re-Reading () As Simon is about to start re-reading the Fiction Uncovered longlist, yet to be announced,  he thought he would bring up the topic of re-reading and why they do it if they do it. Simon and Thomas discuss the pros and the cons of re-reading, such as when it makes books you love less loveable and when it makes a book even better or even makes you love a book that you thought you didn’t.

  1. I enjoyed listening to the podcast today. Thanks, as always! I re-read massive fantasy series when new books come out. My favorite is The Whhel of Time by Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson. It’s finished now, but as it was being written, I would always re-read before a new one. Although, by book 12, I was starting at 5 instead of at the beginning. Partly to remember what’s going on in the complicated plot, but also just because I love the story.

  2. Enjoyed this episode especially as Thomas brought up Helen MacInnes. My mother was a huge fan and I had forgotten all about this author. I reread To Kill a Mockingbird and The Great Gatsby. I was a huge rereader as a child : Harriet the Spy, all the Encyclopedia Browns that were in my library, Cheaper by the Dozen and several other books that were in my tiny branch of the NYPL. We had no books in the house after picture books; my thrifty parents made me go to the library and I went twice a week.

  3. Thomas, I don’t know if you have heard of the website thriftbooks.com, but they have several Helen MacInnes novels for sale for cheap. Because you spoke of her, I am going to try her out. Thanks.
