Why subscribe? I join the dots so you don’t have to.


I’m Rashmee Roshan Lall. Every Wednesday, I join the dots and connect the big world news story to the world of books and you get a quick newsletter. On Saturday, you get an easy-listening podcast.

I’m a journalist and writer, a news junkie and passionate book reader. I follow the news and read books for…uhhh…some 18 hours a day! I have a PhD in Critical Research & Creative Writing and live in the UK with my husband and Bayta, the puppy that appears in the video.

If you read or listen to This Week, Those Books, even if you don’t read the actual book, you’ll be able to discuss it. I never recommend a book I don’t like and I go through a number every week to find the few I share with you.

My website rashmee.com has most of my published articles and blogs. Click on This Week, Those Books to access previous posts and podcasts.

Thanks for reading and/or listening.
