Hosts of the Books on the Nightstand Podcast

Interview starts at 16:12 (Photo by Katie Loss)

[Ann Kingman]: We are very vehemently anti-book snobbery. We don’t care what people read. We try not to look down on anybody for any reading choices they make. We think there is a book for every reader out there. And because we do work in the industry, we do have some knowledge of that. So even books that are not necessarily my favorite books, I might know that you would love it, that it would be the perfect book for you.
