Has anybody heard of/ is anybody participating in this ‘Big Jubilee Read’ that the BBC and Arts Council are doing? https://readinggroups.org/big-jubilee-read
 

I have to admit, I’ve hardly read any of the books in any of the decades… 

 

 


I have heard about it but nothing interested me so I'm not participating

I wasn't aware of it. It would have been good if the BBC had put it on a prominent place on their website. Having said that, the only book related thing I've seen on their website main page recently are plugs for their god-awful books programme Between the Covers.

Yeah it really wasn’t well advertised! 
 

I don’t actually want to do it as a challenge but I’ll definitely use it to find out more about some of the books I hadn’t heard of. 
 

Also realised after I posted it that the link wasn’t the one I’d originally seen - the bbc version has more information: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/articles/4RNfHvd2sxNlHDFFqzTGVKc/the-big-jubilee-read-2012-2022

I've only read 2-3 from each decade (other than the 50s, where I've read none!), but quite a few are on my list to read for my Read Around the World challenge.  Having done a bit of research around that, this actually looks to be a very interesting list, and I will use it to guide me to other titles.
