Podcasts for Book Lovers

Large group 2

What do you do when you’ve just finished a book that was so good you didn’t want it to end? You’re not quite ready to start a new book, but your brain is crying out for some activity or entertainment. Bring on the podcast!

It’s also a brilliant way to discover new reads….You can listen to literary chat, find out about new books or get to know the authors behind the writing. A podcast will broaden your mind and keep your finger on the pulse while you come to terms with your post book blues.

Podcast popularity is continually rising and people are listening everywhere – on the train, while they do jobs around the house and before they go to bed.

What’s a podcast?

Not sure what we’re talking about? Well, a podcast is essentially a radio show that you can listen to on the internet for free any time you want. You can either listen to a podcast through a website (this is called streaming), or, you can download it, which means you’re saving it on your phone, tablet, or computer and it’s ready for you anytime, even without an internet connection.

We’ve put together a list of our favourite book related podcasts for you to enjoy. From celebrity storytelling to a tour of the fascinating connections between Shakespeare and the world around us, there should be something to suit all tastes. Download the list.
