Listen | 35:02

They are the ideal stocking-filler – inexpensive and entertaining, with a huge amount of choice – so it’s no surprise that Dubray Books shifts a serious number of titles over the festive period.

Ciarán Hancock is joined by managing director of Dubray Books, Maria Dickenson, to discuss another good year for the retailer, weathering the challenges of audio and eBooks, bouncing back from Covid and the title she has read three times already this year.

Produced by John Casey, with JJ Vernon on sound.
