Celebrating ten years of the Richard and Judy Book Club
We used to see them on our screens every morning, but now they’re more often found reading a best-seller.
As this month marks 10 years of the Richard and Judy Book Club, they’re joining us to talk about their brand new six-week podcast series that looks back over their favourite fiction.
They’ll be giving us all the gossip about the celebrity guests joining them for the series, as well as sharing why they believe lockdown has rekindled our love of reading.
On celebrating ten years of their successful book club, Richard says: "It doesn't feel like it's been ten years. It's been hugely enjoyable and a privilege to discover so many brilliant books. Choosing best-sellers is like a muscle you develop. It must be like being a chef and knowing just how much salt to put in. It's clear to us after about 50 pages whether it's got a good chance of being on the list."
Their six week podcast series also starts today featuring various celebrity guests and authors of some of their favourite books. Richard says: "We recorded with Gabby Logan last week, and we ended up having a conversation about motherhood. It's not just a podcast where people talk about books - they're talking about their own lives and things in the books which made them think about their own experiences. It's a much wider conversation."
