Episode 5: Short and Long Reads



Episode 5 - Saturday 1st May 2021

Kiera and Simon rave about short books, drop some serious numbers when it comes to book length, and speculate on what types of reading give us an endorphin hit. Simon gives a health warning for Clarissa. We’d love to hear about whether you’re also counting words and pages or whether you delight in a longer read. Find us on Twitter @BadReadsPodcast.
