Every month we'll be reading a book and getting the author in for a chat. This is your chance to ask why exactly there's that plot twist in chapter five and what inspired the story and why the publishers chose that cover and how the author goes about writing and how long it took and anything else you've ever wondered.

When we announce the book of the month (see this month's book below), you'll have around four or five weeks to beg, borrow or steal a copy and get through it. (This is not meant to sound like it's a chore!).
Once you've all had time to read the book, we'll get the author in for a webchat and discuss our reactions and whether it's based on the author's own life. So don't give away the ending before that.
As far as possible, we'll feature contemporary authors, so we can get them in for a web chat. We'll hope to choose page-turning reads, fiction and non-fiction, that offer something to talk about, tell us something we didn't know, or make us laugh. Good books, in other words.
If you have any ideas about books we ought to feature - or if enough people want to discuss a classic, even though we can't get Emily Bronte into Gransnet HQ for a chat - let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll see what we can do.
