This week, BBC Radio 4 has been playing a series of programs based on the lives of some of the great publishing families (e.g. MacMillanWeidenfeldFaber, and Allen Lane - the founder of Penguin Books) who helped to revolutionize the book industry worldwide over the past 200 years.    I'd like to invite all BookLikes members to tune into BBC Radio 4 this week and treat yourself to an entertaining and edifying experience.
