Welcome to the latest episode of The Readers, this week Thomas and Simon, the original one, have a colourful catch up and then discuss re-reading and their reading horizons; what they have read, are reading and want to read next…
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.
