Welcome to Just the Books

Just the Books PodcastDracula is dead. Long live Gulliver!

Our next book, Gulliver’s Travels by Jonathan Swift will begin mid-April. In the meantime, we’ll be uploading back-episodes of other books.

What is Just the books?

As you may already know, Just the Books is a sister-show to the well-reviewed CraftLit: A Podcast for Crafters Who Love Books.
In episodes of CraftLit, the host shares crafty chit-chat before highlighting the important parts of the next chapter of the book being covered. Just the Books takes the audio from the CraftLit episodes and lops off the crafty talk, leaving you with (you guessed it!) Just the Book talk.

The episode numbers correlate between shows, so Pride and Prejudice chapters 1–4 are covered in CraftLit episode one as well as in Just the Books episode one.

The easiest way to listen is via iTunes, though there are players on each of the shownotes pages here. To begin at the beginning—with Pride and Prejudice—please start by following this link to the first episode’s page. You can then navigate via the links at the top of individual shownotes pages which will direct you to the next post.

Our latest book is Dracula, which we’re loading here in sync with CraftLit. The episode 223 set of shownotes for Stoker’s opus have lots of little tidbits you might find edifying. The most recent episode will appear below this post.

And welcome! We’re awfully glad you’re here.
