Books on the Nightstand published our final episode in July 2016. This is a place for listeners to find old episodes. 

I'm sorry that we don't have show notes for all of the episodes, and that the episodes do not have consistent filenames. Still, we hope you find that the content is valuable enough to overlook those annoyances.

Thank you to all who have listened to BOTNS over the years and for those who are just discovering the podcast.

In Episode 2 of the Books on the Nightstand Podcast, we first discuss a recent essay in the New York Times Book Review, It's Not You, It's Your Books by Rachel Donadio.  Can you find true love if your significant other has bad taste in books?

Then we spend a few minutes talking about some of our favorite authors.  Michael likes William Boyd and Jonathan Lethem; Ann's favorites are Ian McEwan and Valerie Martin.  Ann shows her cultural illiteracy by confusing John Lithgow with John Malkovich (it was Malkovich that starred in Mary Reilly, of course).

In the last segment, we preview two books that have just been or will soon published in the next few weeks:  Loving Frank by Nancy Horan (on sale today) and Peace by Richard Bausch (on sale April 15th).

Full details of the books discussed are at our blog:
