In October, 2006 a third book about Mystery Theater was published, examining the series value today in education and instruction: The CBS Radio Mystery Theater as an Educational Degree.

Famous quotes containing the word books:

    In a world that holds books and babies and canyon trails, why should one condemn oneself to live day-in, day-out with people one does not like, and sell oneself to chaperone and correct them?
    Ruth Benedict (1887–1948)

    So far as I am individually concerned, & independent of my pocket, it is my earnest desire to write those sort of books which are said to “fail.”
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)
