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.
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...
