Long Time No See… July 16, 2015 | 10:14 am

Hello again!  Unbelieveably, it’s been almost 3 years since we last updated this page.  In the meantime, we decided to take a bit of a break, then did a local radio project called Lincoln AtoZ.  But now we’re back - or at least will be very soon - with a brand new podcast called SPO!LER

Our new show will continue in the tradition of The Reading Room by reviewing books, but will also take in movies and TV.  One of the limitations we found when doing reviews on The Reading Room was that we always had to skirt around the ending, any twists or any other spoilers. In this new show, we’ll have no such limitations, reviewing works in their entirety - hence the title SPO!LER.

If you enjoyed The Reading Room, we hope you’ll also enjoy SPO!LER - pop over to our new we [...]
