About Booker Talk
Love Talking About Books? Great. You’re In The Right Place
That’s exactly what you get at BookerTalk. Conversations about books.
It’s a melting pot of reviews, discussions and interviews. A space where as avid readers we can indulge in our favourite topic.
Who Is Booker Talk?
I’m Karen. A life-long book addict from Wales.
I love reading books.
I love talking about books. To anyone and everyone.
My friends and relatives were exhausted by my constant chatter about the books I’d just bought, the ones I planned to buy; the books I’d just read and the ones I wanted to read.
In desperation I turned to strangers. Passengers on planes and trains; patients in hospital waiting rooms, customers in cafes. If I saw them reading a book I just couldn’t resist the opportunity for a chat.
I created BookerTalk eight years ago as a space where book addicts like myself could get together and chat about the thing we love most. My original intention was just to blog about my Booker Prize project. But as my interests grew, so did the focus of the blog.
What can you expect from BookerTalk?
Now at BookerTalk you’ll find my reviews of books from 19th century fiction to contemporary literature; from historical fiction to fiction in translation. There may even be a crime novel now and again.
One thing I promise you: This is a blog site completely free of books whose cover features bare chested guys or smouldering women with long lashes and pouty lips. That might be he last book in the shop but no way am I buying!
You’ll also find book recommendations. Perfect for people like you who need to fill gaps in those bookshelves.
And there’s a special corner I reserve just for sharing my passion for the literature of my home country of Wales. I call it Cwtch Corner because in Wales we do love to cwtch (cuddle up) with our friends. So you’ll find interviews with Welsh authors and features on Welsh literature.
