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.

Picking up on a topic Ann wrote about in a previous blog post, we're discussing books vs. movies. Are the books always better? Entertainment Weekly seems to think so!

Next, we talk about four novels that either are, or will be, movies, including The Road and Revolutionary Road. Check out this New York Times article about the making of the movie version of The Road. Also, you can watch the trailer for Revolutionary Road here.

Two other links on this topic:

  • Vintage Books and Anchor Books Facebook Page - Vintage and Anchor have many movie-tie-ins out now and more coming out. Their Facebook page is a great way to keep up to date on all of them, plus all of the other great Vintage/Anchor titles.
  • Roxanne Coady, owner of RJ Julia Booksellers has written a column with her take on three book-based-movies out this fall.
As usual, we finish the episode with two books we can't wait for you to read, including The Good Thief by Hannah Tinti. Here's a video of Hannah, describing the book and its genesis.

Full details of the books discussed are at our blog:
