You’re Booked

Hosted ByDaisy Buchanan

Welcome to You’re Booked, the podcast for literary nosy parkers who would like the chance to snoop around their favourite authors’ bookshelves.

I’m Daisy Buchanan, your Book Inspector, and I’ll be asking our guests all about the first forbidden books they read under the covers, the beloved books they have borrowed, and never given back, and those impressive heavyweight hardbacks that make them look like intellectual giants – even though they couldn’t get beyond the first twenty pages.

We’ll also be talking about what makes readers into writers, how our guests became book lovers and their favourite reading memories, all with a dash of intelligence and a dollop of irreverence. Our guests include Dolly Alderton, Nina Stibbe, Nikesh Shukla, and many more favourites from our own bookshelves.

15. Sarah Knight

In an episode with a slight difference, we meet the multi-million-book bestselling, Marie Kondo of feelings, Sarah Knight. Sarah is the celebrated author of The Life Changing Magic Of Not Giving A F**k, and changed her life by moving to the Dominican Republic. Sadly we could not afford to go to the Dominican Republic so we caught up with Sarah at Foyles bookshop in London, during her UK tour for her brilliant new bookCalm The F**k Down. Sarah discusses discovering talent, her love of Doritos eating and the one (ONE!) physical book that she owns.
