Room Tops Liveline Listeners Poll
Liveline listeners voted for their favourite books of 2010 from a shortlist of ten on Monday 20th December 2010. The shortlist was selected by Liveline production team and the show’s presenter Joe Duffy.
The show operated a text poll that eliminated shortlisted titles until only one remained standing.
Some of the results are a surprise with Ryan Tubridy’s successful title falling out of the running at the first hurdle and Poolbeg published, His Name Is Rebecca, making it to Number four.
