We’ve reassembled our book club one last time before we bid adieu to 2020, to have a chat about the books they got lost in this year. Ann Ingle, Niamh Towey and Bernice Harrison join Róisín to recommend some great reads that you might consider gifting to your nearest and dearest this Christmas and to drop a few not-so-subtle hints about the books they hope to find under the tree for themselves on December 25th. Ireland’s booksellers have played a blinder throughout this pandemic, going to great lengths to get books to their customers despite a really challenging trading environment. With that in mind, please do your best to shop locally this Christmas and help to make sure our independent bookshops survive Covid-19 too. Books mentioned today: 1. Irish Country Furniture and Furnishings 1700-2000, by Claudia Kinmonth 2. A Promised Land, by Barack Obama 3. The Searcher, by Tana French 4. Big Girl, Small Town, by Michelle Gallen 5. The Lying Life of Adults, by Elena Ferrante 6. Fat Cow, Fat Chance by Jenni Murray 7. Queenie, by Candice Carty Williams 8. Intuitive Eating, by Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch 9. Exciting Times, by Naoise Dolan 10. 32 words for Field, by Manchan Mangan
