I’D RATHER BE READING, THE DELIGHTS AND DILEMMAS OF THE READING LIFE, by Anne Bogel, Baker Books/Baker Publishing Group


Out September, 2018

For so many people, reading isn’t just a hobby or a way to pass the time–it’s a lifestyle. Our books shape us, define us, enchant us, and even sometimes infuriate us. Our books are a part of who we are as people, and we can’t imagine life without them.

I’d Rather Be Reading is the perfect literary companion for everyone who feels that way. In this collection of charming and relatable reflections on the reading life, beloved blogger and author Anne Bogel leads readers to remember the book that first hooked them, the place where they first fell in love with reading, and all of the moments afterward that helped make them the reader they are today. Known as a reading tastemaker through her popular podcast What Should I Read Next?, Bogel invites book lovers into a community of like-minded people to discover new ways to approach literature, learn fascinating new things about books and publishing, and reflect on the role reading plays in their lives.

The perfect gift for the bibliophile in everyone’s life, I’d Rather Be Reading will command an honored place on the overstuffed bookshelves of any book lover.

MY THOUGHTS:

I received this book in exchange for my honest review.

I loved this book. I read it in one night all cozied up in a chair. With a warm tea in hand, I found myself nodding, smiling and I even laughed out loud at the similarities I found in this book to how I think about reading books.  

There is so much to gain from reading this book even if it’s to give your dedication to endless hours of reading some form of validation.  For lots of shared insights and love of books by the someone else, I would highly recommend you pick this one up, grab a tea and cozy blanket and snuggle down for a lovely  read.
