Lots of us are probably currently enjoying BBC2’s My Life in Books – I find it incredibly refreshing to have intelligent discussion of books on television, even if Anne Robinson wouldn’t have been my first choice of host.
I mentioned a little while ago that I’d be hosting a second series of the bloggers’ version of My Life in Books – and it will be starting tomorrow! (I’m taking a bit of a risk here, as I’m still waiting to hear from some people… but I have full faith that they’ll get their replies to me before their slot comes up… please!)
So this is the last you’ll be hearing from me for a week and a bit. This time around we have 16 participants, in pairs, running from tomorrow until the following Monday. I’ve asked questions which cover books loved in childhood, adolescence, early adulthood, and today – as well as a guilty pleasure or surprise. The resulting lists probably wouldn’t be each blogger’s top five favourite reads, but they certainly reveal a lot about their cumulative reading lives.
Oh, and I emailed everyone their mystery partner’s choice of books, and asked them to answer a tricky question: what do these books say about their reader? Always the most fun part, in my opinion.
Thanks to everyone who has agreed to play along – I think it’s going to be a really fun week. Please do comment about the books you’ve read or want to read, and if you’re one of the bloggers for that day, please do feel free to answer away in the comment box.
Lovely! Have fun…!
