Betsy (ebburtis) | 1261 comments If you listen to podcasts, tell us what your favorite book or reading podcasts are. What is it you like about each one.? I know many of us listen to Books on the Nightstand, but there are many others.

LynnB I don't listen to podcasts, but I check the Books on the Nightstand website every week or so.

Linda | 1424 comments Books on the Nightstand - don't miss it. It's only 20-30 minutes. I like their format and they're fun.

I have listened to Bookrageous and Book Riot but they are usually about an hour and I don't appreciate the language.

I also listen to the New York Times Book Review every Friday.

I have a bunch more podcasts downloaded but just don't usually get to them.

Kate | 4 comments I listen to Books on the Nightstand, the New York Times as well as some episodes of Literary Disco. I also listen to The Readers, Adventures with Words and Hear Read This which are from Great Britain (except for Thomas on The Readers).

Sue | 8 comments The Lit Up Show is a fairly new podcast I've enjoyed so far. I've listened to fun conversations with Hanya Yanagihara and Heidi Julavits. I also checked out Uncovered for the episode where Ann Kingman was a guest and enjoyed it.

I listen to The Readers and BOTNS regularly, but my all time favorite is the New Yorker Fiction Podcast, which I eagerly anticipate every month.

Betsy (ebburtis) | 1261 comments Oh goody! Some new ones to check out. I've been listening to so many books that I am backed up on my podcast listening. But Books on the Nightstand is always on the list. Very occasionally I listen to The Readers, Bookrageous and Literay Disco. I hate to admit it, but the hosts of the latter two are just too young for me. I like many of the Slate podcasts, but the book one is the Audio Book club and if I've read the book, I listen to that one after.

I also like the New Yorker one and Selected Shorts is similar but all short stories read by performers of stage or screen.

Go to iTunes and have them downloaded to your device. Some cost a little, many are free. Once you subscribe to a podcast it will automatically download to your device when there is a new one.
