Book Shambles co-host Robin Ince is a well known bibliophile. The problem with this is it means his house is in danger of collapsing under the weight of books. So he set about trying to part with 1000 books he’s never going to get round to reading. So one day, he and producer Trent tried to load 1000 books onto the back deck. It was painful.

We ran a competition to give away some to Book Shambles listeners as people told us what books had forever been on their ‘must read’ pile. Read the results of that poll here.
