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.

We begin the podcast with a look at different ways to keep track of what you've read and what you want to read. Do you have a million scraps of paper or do you write everything down neatly in a notebook? Do you use one of the online library sites (like Goodreads or Library Thing) or do you keep everything in a Word or Excel document? Let us know in the comments or over at our Goodreads Group.

In segment two, we respond to a listener's request and discuss some books that made us laugh (not a bad thing to look for in a book these days!). They are also books that would make for great reading group discussions.

As usual, we end with two books we can't wait for you to read. Ann discusses Pictures at an Exhibition by Sara Houghteling, a novel based on true stories of spies and art during World War II. Michael discusses Shannon, Frank Delaney's new novel set in Ireland just after the 1921 Treaty with Britain.
