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.

Ann's under the weather, so Michael shares one book he can't wait for you to read.

A reminder to check out the discussion boards on our Goodreads group, if you aren't already. I especially love browsing the monthly thread of what people are reading. You can find the discussion for January 2016 here

One Book I Can't Wait For You to Read (03:36)


All the Birds in the Sky by Charlie Jane Anders is already on the list of my favorite books of 2016. Here's the review I wrote on Goodreads: "An utterly unique book. Parts of it bear resemblance to things I've read before, but as a whole, it's completely original. And heartbreaking, and confounding, and joy-inducing, and terrifying. I won't soon forget [the characters of] Patricia and Laurence. Nor do I ever want to."
It goes on sale January 26.

Correction: I refer to All the Birds in the Sky as Charlie Jane Anders' first novel. In fact, Choir Boy, published in 2005, was her first novel.
