Still haven't read any Pullman yet, but I'm digging this essay collection. Will probably make a run at His Dark Materials this year.

In an atmosphere of suspicion, resentment and hostility, many poems are interrogated until they confess, and what they confess is usually worthless, as the results of torture always are: broken little scraps of information, platitudes, banalities. Never mind! The work has been done according to the instructions, and the result...is measured and recorded and tabulated in line with government targets; and this is the process we call education.

Been a while since I've used this! I've read a lot over the past few months - this is what my library hold list decided I was going to read next.

Philip Pullman discusses the importance of stories and language, why every right thinking person should be a feminist and why recommended reading ages are bad for readers, authors and books #edbookfest

batsy How cool! Sorry, what did he mean about recommended reading? 1y
Moray_Reads @batsy oops, sorry. That was inaccurate typing while walking! It's the idea that all children's books should have the appropriate ages of the readers printed on the covers. He's very much against it! 1y
batsy Oh, OK! Thank you :) I agree with him 👍🏽 1y
Moray_Reads @batsy me to. I think it can be helpful if similar age ranges are shelves together in shops but books definitely shouldn't be labelled. It all depends on the child and the book! 1y

I just love the BBC! Looking forward to finding a copy of this Imagine... episode. Today‘s newsletter also had a few new BBC Radio suggestions for book lovers. I‘ll post those as well for anyone interested.

Christmas bookish presents! Some beautiful cover art there. I can't stroking the Daemon Voices cover. One step away from muttering "my precious".....
