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.

In this episode, we announce that Books on the Nightstand tote bags, t-shirts and more are now available!  Also, a sneak peek at some great fiction coming out this fall -- we've tried our best to make your "to be read" lists even longer than they already are. Lastly, give us a call and tell us your favorite banned book. We'll play responses on an upcoming episode dedicated to Banned Books Week.

The Books on the Nightstand Store is open!

We've had multiple requests for Books on the Nightstand tote bags, so we've opened a store! We've got tote bags, t-shirts, magnets, stickers, mousepads and coffee mugs.  Books on the Nightstand gets a very small commission on each item sold. We'll use the proceeds to buy highly-collectible, leather-bound first editions of pre-1600 literature to cover our hosting fees, but this is really more a service for those of you who asked.

Fantastic Fall Fiction!

What started as a sneak peek at some great books coming out this fall turned into a list that was way too long -- so we've broken it up into two shows. We'll cover nonfiction in the next episode, but this week, we're talking about some wonderful novels that we can't wait to see in bookstores everywhere.

Also, by request, we're experimenting with "add to calendar" links. Some of you have mentioned that you need reminders when we talk about books far in advance.  By clicking on the Google Calendar button or the "add to Outlook" link, you should be able to put the information right into your computer calendar. Let us know how this works for you. We won't do it every episode (it's pretty time consuming), but for a show like this, it might come in handy.

Finally, in preparation for an upcoming show for Banned Books Week, we're asking you to tell us about your favorite banned or challenged book. The American Library Association has a Banned Books Week website which gives some background on Banned Books Week, lists of books frequently challenged, and other information. Also, if you work in a library, school, etc., and have a story about banned or challenged books, we'd love for you to share it with us. Please call our voicemail line (209/867-7323), email us, or leave a comment. Thanks!!
