If you love to read, podcasts may not be your first choice of medium; however, there are a number of incredible book podcasts out there.

So just for literature lovers looking to step outside the book, we rounded up our favorite podcasts—from a grown-up version of Reading Rainbow to conversations recorded live from the most famous bookstore in Paris to a project centered on immersive poetry reading.

There are podcasters who only read celebrity memoirs, interviewers who only speak with debut authors, and Harry Potter super fans who are rereading the series, one chapter at a time.

Without further ado, here are 27 recommendations for book podcasts spanning genre (fantasy! romance! classics!) and location (books in translation! Indigenous authors! books from the Middle East!). There’s something for everyone here—just as long as you love to read.

First Ladies have been a source of fascination since the days of George and Martha Washington.

But for every Jackie Kennedy, whose life was chronicled breathlessly—often by T&C—there are others whose contributions have gone without that kind of recognition.

Lady Bird Johnson has been one of them—until now.On March 1, the ABC News podcast In Plain Sight: Lady Bird Johnson will premiere (available on all major podcast platforms), telling the story of Johnson’s life and influence on American politics in large part through audio diaries that have previously been rarely heard.
