Welcome to the latest episode of The Readers. This week Thomas and Simon talk about two topics that they should have talked above a long time ago… because two listeners sent them back in the Spring. With the attitude of better late than never they talk about their literary confessions and regrets plus if reading a favourite book just once is enough!
Literary Confessions and Regrets () In the first part of the show Simon and Thomas answer listener Michelle’s question about their literary confessions. Which are the books that they are embarrassed to have read or not read? Have they ever regretted missing a book event? What other regrets and confessions do Simon and Thomas have, and which ones do you have?
Is Reading Your Favourite Book Only Once Really Enough () Listener ? wants to know if reading a your favourite book just once is enough? Thomas and Simon talk about their experiences of reading their favourite books again and why they may or may not want to. Would you want to read your very favourite book again or do you think they should just be read and cherished once?
Next time on the Readers () Thomas and Simon will be back in two weeks when they will be back with more book based banter. Next week Simon returns with You Wrote The Book where his special guest is Michel Faber who joins him to discuss his last book The Book of Strange New Things.
