Book TV - Each weekend on C-SPAN 2, Book TV features 48 hours of nonfiction books from 8am Saturday to 8am Monday. This web site enhances information on those books, provides an opportunity to watch or listen to programs you might have missed, and provides additional information not available on the network. Also see particular series/topics, including:
After Words - An interview show in which authors of the latest nonfiction books are interviewed by journalists, public policy makers, legislators, and others familiar with their material.
Biographies - Book TV regularly covers author talks on biographies of prominent and historical figures. These can be searched by author name or subject and viewed here.
Booknotes - For sixteen years, from 1989 to 2004, Booknotes was C-SPAN's signature author-interview program. Booknotes format was simple: One author, one book, one hour. Booknotes had another editorial guideline: authors could only appear on the program once in their careers. As a result, the Booknotes archive is a collection of 800 first-person interviews with some of the best known non-fiction writers of the late 20th century. In addition, contemporary political leaders are seen and heard in their own words, as they discuss their autobiographies and memoirs.
Doody's Book Reviews - Most comprehensive database of books and software in the health sciences, featuring more than 100,000 in print titles, including extensive bibliographic and descriptive data, as well as book cover shots, with expert reviews of more than 24,000 titles.
