The group discusses their best reads of the year, plus some not-so-great reads as well.  Also, what books best defined the past decade, given all that has happened in the past 10 years?  Plus, Renee treats us to a wonderful rendition of bad sex prose, courtesy of this year’s winner of Literary Review’s 2009 bad sex in fiction award.

Bookbabble Episode 15: Books and Sex – Between the Sheets, Baby!
Recorded 7 August 2008
Babblers: Gem, Bjorn, Donny

Synopsis:
The babblers talk about what goes on between the sheets – bookwise, that is.  Is sex merely a gimmick?  What books won’t work without the sex, and why?  Also, Nostradamus is wrong again (simply by virtue of posting this episode late, we have irrefutable proof) and the screwing of the Taming of the Shrew.
