Are you a bibliophile? Do you love hearing conversations and book reviews by your fellow bookworms? Do you love listening to authors talking about their literary works? If you're someone who loves everything about books, then podcasts can be a great thing for you. Podcasts are becoming popular for various reasons. One of them is that they're very accessible in a way that you can easily stream them using your computer or even your phone. Not only that — if you download podcasts, you can enjoy them even if you're not connected to the internet. Some say podcasts may eventually replace books, but it turns out podcasts and books can coexist. There are so many book podcasts now that are hosted by authors to promote their past and future works. There are also podcasts set up by book clubs which share previews, plot or any interesting details about bestselling fiction and non-fiction books. Of course, there are also podcasts where books are read aloud so you all you need to do is rest your eyes, chill and let the record take you to the colorful realm of literature. You can start your "biblio-podcasting" journey with our collection of best book podcasts here. And just like books, feel free to enjoy them from cover to cover!
