BBC Radio Oxford Afternoon Bookclub

This afternoon, had the great honour to do the Afternoon Bookclub again with Kat Orman - and the mighty Nigel French from Cole's Books in Bicester. It seemed to go well as a double-act - so you might see us again in the near future.

We both brought our top recommends from each shop - so if you want to listen to two very passionate booksellers go head-to-head with a whole help of recommends click on the iPlayer link and fast forward to 1hr 8mins.

Highlights are Nigel and I talking about Clare Balding's biography 'My Animals and Other Family' (which we reviewed last Friday on the blog), Richard Curtis' subversive picture book 'The Empty Stocking', and Sally Gardner's fab book for younger readers 'Operation Bunny' - as well as a shameless plug for our upcoming event with Mark Forsyth.

As always, it was a lot of fun (even when we were asked about our views on fashion and school dinners - don't ask). More recommends coming soon. The BBC will keep the file up on iPlayer until about 12 November...
