Bookbabble Episode 31: Do Critics and Reviews Influence Our Reading
Recorded 11 April 2009
Babblers: Bjorn, Gem, Donny

Synopsis:

The babblers talk about reviews, regardless of whether they are from well-known, highly regarded professional critics or your average blogger.  What is the difference between the two, and how either affects our reading selection.

Oh, and Gem didn’t like Forgetting Sarah Marshall.

Bookbabble Episode 29: You’ve got me feeling emotions!

Recorded 22 March 2009

Babblers: Gem, Renee, Donny

Synopsis:

After Gem begins with a terribly tragic story of her beloved Dalek doll, the babblers launch into a discussion on books that elicit strong emotions from its readers.  Find out which books still emotionally affect Renee since she was 6 till this very day (which I understand is not a very long time at all), and Gem’s as well (it goes without saying that Donny doesn’t cry from reading).  Besides sadness, the babblers also talked a little about books that elicit anger, horror.  Finally, Renee closes with a heart-warming story of a long-lost textbook.
