Preview Mode Links will not work in preview mode

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.

Today, we mark the annual arrival of Banned Books Week, which this year runs from September 27 - October 4. Read more about banned and challenged books at the American Library Association Banned Books Website. Then we tiptoe carefully into the kids' section of the bookstore. Don't worry -- these are books that adults will love as much as young readers. Listen as we tell you about a few of our favorites. City of Ember hits theaters on October 10th, and looks terrific. See the trailer here, but read the book before you see the entire movie:

The 39 Clues Website, is an integral part of the hunt for the Cahill treasure. It will be very interesting to watch how the books and website work together as the series progresses. Are you a grownup who likes to read children's books? We look forward to hearing your opinions in the comments or at the Books on the Nightstand group at Good Reads

And then, as always, two books that we can't wait for you to read. Trespass is new in paperback, and highly recommended for book group discussions. Michael tells us about American Lightning, a book of history and true crime that grabbed him from the first page.
Please share your thoughts about this episode with us in the comments. We'd love for you to call in and leave a book recommendation, question, or comment by phone, our voicemail line is (206) 350-2932. We may play it on an upcoming podcast. Thanks!
