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 start with a conversation about the many year-end best-of lists that have come out recently. How much attention do you pay to them and do they make you want to run out and buy more books? Next, we offer a glimpse into the first four months of 2009, which are filled with books we're excited about. Many of these are titles you'll hear much more about on future episodes, so we're keeping it short here... just whetting your appetite! [A note about the title links below: usually we link to LibraryThing, where you can get general info to take to your local bookstore. Since some of these books don't come out for four months, we've decided to link to the publishers' websites instead. We'll return to our normal format next time.] Lastly, we present our usual "Two Books We Can't Wait For You to Read." Michael helps you keep your "eat healthy" resoultion by talking about Whole Grains for Busy People by Lorna Sass. Ann tells us about Elsewhere USA by Dalton Conley, which looks at how the cultures of work and home life have changed over the last several decades. Full details of the books discussed are at our blog: Please visit us there.
