Podcasts About Books

Podcasts are a fantastic way to learn about many things.  I have been listening to two superb podcasts that inspire and inform about, you guessed it, books.

What to Read Next Podcast is hosted by Modern Mrs. Darcy blogger Anne Bogel.  Each week Anne warmly talks with a reader as they share with her their three favorite books and one they didn’t enjoy. Anne then performs her literary matchmaking as she recommends three new books for the guest to read.   Some wonderful recommendation come from these discussions and I promise it will keep your to-be-read pile quite high.

Just the Right Book Podcast with Roxanne Cody is hosted by the owner of  the regarded independent bookstore R.J. Julia Booksellers in Madison, CT.  Roxanne’s interviews with authors is thorough, thoughtful and highly entertaining. She does a wonderful job of exploring both the book and the author.

Download an episode or two and listen on your next walk or while preparing dinner and let me know what you think.

I’m loving Beth Ann Fennelly’s new micro-memoir, Heating and Cooling. This format is an inventive and effective way to present a random group of memories. Give it a look.
