Podcast: Overlooked Books

0:00

Hello again! This episode is all about Overlooked Books; books that have slipped off the shelves but are still a great read, those tricky fourth novels, books that deserve to be better known or more widely read.

We also talk about how important personal recommendations are when ‘selling’ a book, our Triple Choice Tuesday choices for Kim at Reading Matters, the Fiction Uncovered initiative, and My Independent Bookshop, a way for anyone to recommend up to 12 books and allow people to buy them online and still support an independent bookshop.
