Episode Information
The joys of reading, and the love of books.
Published: 28/06/2022 4:40:56 p.m.

The Book Lovers Corner is an idea that has sprung out of a group of like-minded friends’ discussions on books they were reading or had read. They wanted to share their love for reading and passion for books They developed a programme which aims to feature book reviews and updates on what is going on in the reading community both here in the Wairarapa and generally. They hope to inform, stimulate, and open doors to new discoveries and old favourites. “A book is a device to ignite the imagination.” - Alan Bennett “We Read to Know We Are Not Alone” from the film Shadowlands The programme is sponsored by Steve Laurence of Almo’s Book in Carterton, who is another lover of books and has a wealth of information on the literary world and books. Between each session the reviewers will undertake much reading, as well as visits to local libraries and bookstores, and will collect information on what is going on in the reading world in the form of festivals and book-related events locally, nationally and internationally. The books reviewed are available in local libraries, or can be purchased through book stores, so listeners can easily obtain any book reviewed on the programme. There will be no one genre of books to be reviewed but rather an eclectic range which should meet most people’s tastes. We aim for each programme to be one to remember and leave the listener with new ideas or perhaps evoke old reads.
