Audio: Bookshelf Interview #2: Sara

Books are interesting and people are interesting. I figured that if you put people in front of their bookshelves, they're bound to say interesting things, about themselves and their books. I think Sara proved the point in spades.

This is the second in an occasional series of interviews I conducted for Final Draft, my show about books and writing on 2SER FM. (Recorded 4 October 2008).

If you have sensitive ears, note that this piece contains adult themes and infrequent coarse language.

I know this is a little longer than the LetterVox guidelines stipulated. I can cut it down to size if necessary. This is the cut that went to air.

    Hi Benedict, I really

    Hi Benedict,

    I really enjoyed this. I had been thinking about doing the same thing but you beat me to it! I'd love to hear more.

    Do you have an image to upload with the audio by any chance?

    A question I've been asking people is about their 'extreme reads' - there have been some interesting responses to this question, one of which is in Pool under Letter Vox and I have a few more on the way. I'd be interested to know what you thought about that idea too.

    Hi Sarah,

    I'm glad you liked it, it was a lot of fun to make. I do have a few more in the pipes - I'll upload the next one in a week or so. I don't have an image for the piece, but I could get one. Is it necessary?

    The 'extreme reads' piece sounds interesting! I'll check it out and get back to you. I Iiked your recent bit on the book show about the haikus on trains too - I can't believe the people who PREFERRED ads!!
