  • Wish

    I love this podcast and so wish one day Richard and Judy would do a collaboration with American bookshop so we can easily get copies with their little bit extra in them. I would even subscribe to a monthly book club box from them if mailed to the USA.

  • Maybe read the books first

    While I like listening to this podcast I’ve realised that spoilers are sometimes given without warning. I had already read one particular book they covered when they gave something away they really shouldn’t have, fortunately the story wasn’t spoiled for me, but I’m now much more wary. If I think they’re going too far I now stop listening.

  • Please No Spoilers!!!

    I was excited to listen to your episode with Laura Dave talking about her new book, The Last Thing He Told Me. However I was so disappointed after the episode revealed the most important part of the book.
