Do you love a good read? Do you like arguing about a bad one? Do your reading tastes include the best new novels, the most gripping nonfiction, kid's books, poetry, cookbooks, classics--with the odd commercial pot-boiler thrown in for kicks? Do your tastes run to English and American writers as well as Canadian ones? Best of all, do you like talking about what you read, at dinner and at parties and with friends?

If so, Talking Books is for you. On Saturdays at 4:30 on CBC Radio One (and elsewhere on Sirius 137 satellite) join the original on-air book club, as host Ian Brown and his guests--an array of accomplished readers and writers from across Canada and around the world--square off on books of every kind. It's a half hour a week you'll never regret!
