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. 

Jul 6, 2011

It's your show this week, as we play your voicemails telling us which books you are looking forward to reading this summer.


We attend to some details


Thank you, thank you, thank you! We loved hearing your calls, and are thrilled to be able to play your voicemails on this show.

First, a few items of housekeeping:

Our live online chat about Steve Himmer's The Bee-Loud Glade is scheduled for July 28th at 7:30pm EST.

We will discuss Elizabeth Stuckey-French's The Revenge of the Radioactive Lady on August 23rd at 9pm EST.

Please plan on joining us. Both authors will call in about 15 minutes into the hour, so we can talk with them about their books.

Lastly, we plan on announcing details for BOTNS Retreat 2012 sometime in September. But start saving your money now -- we want to meet you, or see you again! More to come...
