We love our book clubs, but our bookshelf shows are all about the books we choose for ourselves. What books are we picking up to get us through January and February, tough months in any normal year but in 2021 we’re also struggling with lockdown. Want some recommendations to get you through it? Listen in as we discuss the books we’ve powered through recently, from Zadie Smith’s essays to a roller-coaster biography of an eccentric mountaineer.
Have you ever dreamed of opening your own bookshop? With Bookshop.org it’s as simple as a few web clicks and then you have all the fun of compiling lists of your favourites. What are the books you would push into somebody’s hands? Have a browse of our first collection based around Kate’s TBR, complete with notes on why they have caught her interest.
