Can you remember every book you’ve read? Pamela Paul can. For 28 years, the editor of the New York Times Book Review has been keeping a journal of every book she’s read. Called ‘Bob’, it faithfully catalogues her life as a reader. Author and former literary editor of The Sydney Morning Herald, Susan Wyndham, converses with Pamela as they unpack her latest work My Life with Bob and ask an important question: what do our choice of books say about us?
