Mark Watson - You're Booked

This week we are snuffling around the bookshelves of comedian and author Mark Watson! Mark is a well-known face on British TV, appearing on show such as QI and Taskmaster and he's renowned as an award-winning stand-up. He's also the author of nine books including the graphic novel Dan and Sam, the non-fiction work Crap at the Environment and novels including Eleven, Hotel Alpha and his latest Contacts (which deals with issues surrounding suicide and mental health - if you're affected by this then the Samaritans are always there). We talked to him about loving Agatha Christie, bookshop positioning, reading on planes and why you should never trust a book that features a map. For details on how you can bid to be a guest on You're Booked (and win lots of lovely books) head to Books To Nourish.
