I remember buying my first iPod and how wondrous it was to be able to carry all my music in one tiny device. Even more wondrous than having a ton of music in my pocket, in my opinion at least, was the invention of the podcast, particularly the bookish podcast. Whether you are interested in new books, old books, or want to know what’s going on in the world of publishing there is a podcast for you. Here are some of my favorites.
Slate’s Audio Book Club – Focuses on the latest bestsellers.
Overdue – Focuses on the books you’ve been meaning to read but haven’t gotten around to just yet.
Hear…Read This! – Takes four hosts from two podcasts (Adventures with Words and The Readers) and adds two books to make one audio book club.
Reading Lives – Interviews with interesting people who happen to love books.
You Wrote the Book! – Authors discuss the first book they ever read, the latest they’ve written, and everything in between.
Lit Up – Asks authors what they’re reading and thinking about.
Advice for the Bookish, Book Recommendations, New Books, and Book News
Dear Book Nerd – Dear Abby for the bookish.
Get Booked – Find the perfect book for the aunt who loves fantasies and the history buff uncle, or get a recommendation for yourself.
All the Books – Find out what books are being published this week.
Book Riot – Learn about what’s happening in the world of publishing and the business of books.
Friends Talking about their Bookish Lives
Adventures with Words – Explores storytelling in its many forms.
Books on the Nightstand – Offers a peek behind the scenes of the publishing business (both hosts work for Random House), book recommendations, and more.
Literary Disco – Three good friends tackle their bookshelves, new books, and play a few games.
So Many Damn Books – TBR growing faster than you can read? The hosts of this podcast can relate.
The Readers – Tackles all things literary, from new books, to old books, to book prizes, to what to do when a good writer turns out to not be such a good person.
