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's podcast is a bit of a mishmash. We are both in the middle of a heavy schedule of bookstore meetings, to help booksellers decide what books to carry this summer. In segment 1, we tell you a little bit about that process.

Then we each talk about a book that was outside of our normal reading categories, and that we loved. Surely you have at least one or two of those, right? Please tell us about them in the comments (or better yet, call our voicemail line and leave a message that we can play on the show. Just call (206) 350-2068 and wait for the beep).

Michael tells us about Ice Time by Jay Atkinson, a story of high-school hockey. (We also learn that Michael was really good at kickball!) And Ann can't say enough about Diana Gabaldon's Outlander, a fantastic time-travel series that combines history, fantasy, and a hunky red-headed heroes who wears a kilt. Do be sure to check out author Diana Gabaldon's website, especially if you want a sneak peak at the graphic novel that Diana is working on.

Lastly, as always: 2 Books We Can't Wait for your to Read. My choice, The Book of Dead Philosophers, is also a bit out of my typical reading categories, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. Michael finally gets to tell you about Hands of My Father, a book that he has been talking about incessantly since he read it. Do us all a favor and read it, so that he can move on to another obsession, please (you know I'm just kidding, right, Michael?).
