Episode 252 of 586 episodes

Sports presenter Colin Murray and comedian Bob Mills argue about their favourite books with Harriett Gilbert. Colin Murray's choice is In Watermelon Sugar by Richard Brautigan. Bob Mills perhaps surprisingly turns out to be a devotee of Georgette Heyer, and nominates These Old Shades. And Harriett Gilbert enthuses over An Artist of the Floating World by Kazuo Ishiguro.
