The Amazon Book Review Podcast: The Archives

Editor on October 30, 2018

The Amazon Books editors love writing about the books that have found a special place on our shelves. But we also spend a great deal of time talking amongst ourselves about these top-notch books, as well as debate why some books that arrived in our hands with high hopes didn't meet our expectations once we cracked open the pages.

So we decided to make a podcast! 

Most episodes of the Amazon Book Review Podcasts will feature a spirited roundtable discussion on books and book-related topics close to our hearts, followed by an interview with a remarkable author. So take a listen—you might just find your next literary love. And subscribe to the Amazon Book Review Podcast on iTunes or TuneIn  to learn about books that will stick with you long after you have flipped the final page.
