About The Books List

The Books List is a new project from the London-based father and son team responsible for the renowned NoSweatShakespeare website, John and Warren King.

Warren King taught English Literature for 42 years in a number of English schools. During the 1980s he was seconded to the National Shakespeare and Schools Project, where he worked to develop methods of teaching Shakespeare in the classroom that bring plays to life for students of all ages.

Warren subsequently worked as a Shakespeare consultant at the London Education Authority, where his focus was working with teachers to make Shakespeare lively, comprehensible and enjoyable for their students. He has created and delivered Shakespeare workshops for both teachers and students, and still regularly visits schools in the UK and Europe to address groups of teachers.

John King has inherited a love of literature of all stripes. He’s worked in digital marketing and content creation for a range of global brands over the past two decades, and is now runs his own digital agency.

They started The Books List to allow them to expand their footprint beyond Shakespeare, and make the whole world of English literature accessible and easy to understand.
