Babblers: Bjorn, Lone, Marcel, Donny, with guest Glenda Larke

Synopsis:

The group talks about censorship in our literature, and as it happens in our respective countries.  We discuss about what’s clearly bad, why they should or shouldn’t, and the beef about the whole process.  Also, a little on NaNoWriMo, and why teapots can be so titillating they deserved to be banned!

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.

Show Length: 65:10 mins
