Reading As Good As It Gets? With Bev Turner & Marina Fogle

    • Relationships

This week's episode is an uplifting conversation about reading. Join Bev and Marina on a trip down memory lane as they remember their favourite books from childhood, their teens, and the present day. From Enid Blyton, Roald Dahl and Judy Blume, to Lisa Jewell, Louis de Berniere and Allison Pearson, a myriad of different authors and genres are covered.
The ladies bring their usual mix of insight and humour to the many different aspects of books and reading, including how to help our children embrace books, the benefits of Audible, and how to decide which books to keep and which to chuck!
Whether you're an avid reader, or you never seem to find the time to pick up a book, there is something for everyone in this episode. You may just feel inspired to curl up on the sofa with a book this evening, instead of turning to Netflix or Social Media. Because isn't it true that there's just something about a good book that provides nourishment for the soul in a way that a TV show or a film can't? When it comes to making life As Good As It Gets, perhaps it's actually when we feel we don't have the time to read that it's most important for us to make the time.
