For Bookmarks today, we're talking to someone who writes books for a living and often joins us on Afternoons as our book critic.

Pip Adam also hosts the podcast Better off Read where she speaks to other authors about reading and writing.

Pip joins us in the Wellington studio to share some of her favourite songs, books, films and podcasts with us!
