Just the Right Book! Podcast: Episode 32 – Michael Kindness

Just the Right Book! Podcast, hosted by Roxanne Coady of Connecticut’s acclaimed, award-winning, independent bookseller R.J. Julia, is now available on BookTrib.com, the premier website where readers meet writers. The podcast and BookTrib are both dedicated to helping readers find their next favorite read and this pairing will open up a world of great possibilities.

We bring you the latest episode, where Roxanne Coady talks to Michael Kindness, a friend of the show who has appeared in Just the Right Book! Podcast in earlier days. Michael Kindness is a sales representative for Penguin Random House and is a former host of the popular podcast, Books on the Nightstand. Kindness’ past relationship with Books on the Nightstand consisted of great book recommendations and behind-the-scenes looks at the world of books, stores, and publishing in general – a useful tool that many readers and writers used.

Kindness returns to Just the Right Book! Podcast to help you add the best books to your book pile this summer season. With a history rich in a love for books, Kindness is a go-to for the best recommendations in books, as he has been exposed to the wonderful world of novels for years. He and Roxanne discuss summer reading as a whole as well as discuss suggestions, such as The Last Days of Night by Graham Moore, which touches base on the ‘War od the Currents’ between Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse. They also touch base on some of the best bookstores that you could check out this summer to find the best novels available!
