Episode 577: Books, classics, and collecting

It’s only been a week since Jonathan and Gary sat down to chat with Nicola Griffith about her new book, Spear, but in a bid to get back on schedule, they took a moment to record a new episode for the coming long weekend.

They kick off chatting about travel during the pandemic and the coming WorldCon, before Jonathan admits he’s only just read Ursula K. Le Guin’s A Wizard of Earthsea, and then they go on to talk about Le Guin’s work, the oddities of book buying and collecting, and then our hosts attempt to answer the age-old questions: do you need to read a book? if so, why? do you need to keep book? which ones can you get rid of, and how?  Really, it’s a ramble that kicks off with Earthsea and ends up chatting about books. It’s a Coode Street podcast.

As always, our thanks for your patience with our rambles. We hope you enjoy the episode, and see you again pretty soon!
