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.

Why do we buy a book that we really want to read, and then keep it on the shelf, unread, sometimes for years? We ask ourselves that question in segment one.

Then, in celebration of February's Open That Bottle night. But instead of opening a bottle (of wine), we are opening books that we have saved for some special occasion. The occasion is now. Ann finally reads Barbara Kingsolver's The Bean Trees, and Michael dives into The Book Thief, asking himself why he waited so long to read this fantastic book.

Speaking of The Book Thief, there's a great video of the author, Marcus Zusak, from a Good Morning America appearance. We can't embed the video in this post, but if you click on the video image, below, it will take you to the link where you can watch it.

As always, we have two books we can't wait for you to read: The Frozen Thames by Helen Humphreys and The Brother Gardeners by Andrea Wulf. Both are great reads, and we hope you enjoy them!
