Did The Reading

What we read over lockdown


We're back!

To start series two we both talk through some of the books we read during lockdown, as we face another one. From fiction through to books we lent and borrowed (and we know how picky Jess is about who she lends books to) we try and fit it all into 40 mins.

We would like to encourage anyone looking to buy any of the books we mentioned to do so through the new bookshop.org. A new website and centre for independent bookshops — simply search up any book and be pointed in the direction of a local bookshop who stocks it.
