Kate and Laura on the books that spark conversation, and conversations about books.
We believe reading is better when we do it together. That’s why we founded our book clubs and why we founded this podcast – to turn the solitary act of reading into a rich shared experience.
Loved the book? Loathed it? So much the better. We’re all about big opinions. We live for the great debate, the heated discussion, the ‘I see what you’re saying, but here’s why you’re wrong’ rant. With good humour. With respect. But with commitment too. Because we’ve forgotten that disagreement is good for us. That it’s the friction of debate that sparks off new ideas, new perspectives – just like a good book. Bring the two together and there’s really nothing better.
So, listen in. We promise lively and frank reviews and recommendations, both from us and from members of our book clubs, plus interviews with book clubs, book shops and book lovers of all stripes. Just be warned, your TBR pile is about to grow exponentially.
