Brit Lit Podcast, episode 53: All The Books, with Liberty Hardy

From time to time on the podcast, we speak to someone who is not British, so that we get an outside perspective on UK books. On episode 53, we hear from Liberty Hardy, Book Riot’s resident velocireader and all round Queen Of All Things Books. She talked about how she manages to read as much as she does – and she really does read a LOT – and we also talked about her faourite Kate Atkinson book, what Sarah Waters quote she has as a tatoo, and a lot more. It’s a fun one — have a listen!

Also, it’s the podcast’s 2nd birthday today! If you’d like to buy it a present, some love on is always appreciated.
