A preview of fiction titles we’re looking forward to in the next nine months.


Don’t Forget! Although this is the final “regular” episode of Books on the Nightstand, there will be an episode 390 – filled with hilarious bloopers!


Information on our special Two Dozen Books We Can’t Wait For You to Read Sweepstakes is available here. Be sure to enter now! While entering, you can opt-in to a mailing list, where we can keep you updated on BOTNS news. We can’t guarantee what we will be sending out via this list other than that we will share our two monthly selections that will go to the winners of the sweepstakes. (Something many of you asked for!)

If you’d like to join the mailing list for possible future BOTNS news, but can’t enter the sweepstakes because you live outside the US, you can sign up here.

Tell me what to read this summer! Go here to vote on which of  six titles I’m embarrassed to say I still haven’t read I should read before Labor Day.
