Bin Ladin's Bookshelf

A sizeable tranche of documents recovered during the raid on the compound used to hide Usama bin Ladin. The release contains two sections. The first is a list of non-classified, English-language material found in and around the compound. The second is a selection of now-declassified documents. The Intelligence Community will be reviewing hundreds more documents in the near future for possible declassification and release.

Open Book

I was on BBC Radio 4's main book programme Open Book over the weekend talking with Mariella Frostrup about my latest book Improbable Libraries but also a little bit about Bookshelf the book - you can listen to it again on the BBC Sounds thingy here. As an added bonus, Julian Barnes was on just before me (I come in at around the 17 minute mark).
