On a bright sunny day I drove across Dunstable Downs to the BBC Three Counties Radio station in Dunstable. As usual shortly after 1pm I joined Nick Coffer in the studio and we discussed the books I had chosen for today. I seldom have a them but occasionally one emerges and today it was definitely books set abroad. Of the novels, three were set in America, two of them historical and one between London and Brazil. I also recommended a couple of books that would make non fattening Mothers Day presents – The Collins Complete Book of British Birds and Dreamweaver, an adult colouring book by Olivia Whitworth. It is always enjoyable, nothing is more fun than talking about books!
You can hear the programme here . I start 78 minutes into the show.
So now the best part of my month is here – what to read next? I will have a look through my proofs and see what I have on Netgalley and probably check what the book groups are reading and go from there.
