An English Literature Podcast

I’ve added another recommended podcast to my list, this one a is a treasure if you enjoy good fiction. Why I Really Like This Book is a quirky sail through the lesser known waters of English Literature. The pilot is Kate Macdonald, who teaches English Literature but was frustrated at the limited range of books she could cover. Each podcast spends ten minutes or so exploring a single suggested book. Her first series was a random alphabetical wander, now she’s taken to talking about sets of five books with a common theme. Recent sets include Five Appalling Fictional Women and Five Classic Detective Novels. If you’re looking for ideas for books to curl up with, this is an excellent source of suggestions.
