What Should I Read Next? Podcast
At yoga yesterday, our instructor threw down the challenge to set our intentions for the year. As longtime readers know, I ditched resolutions a few years ago, but I like the idea of intentions.
Intentions are optimistic, judgment free, and have success already baked in.
My intentions for this year are joy—I’m ready to feel light-hearted and free—yoga, and reading.
To that end, it was an absolute delight to be a guest on the What Should I Read Next? podcast with Anne Bogel, the bright, charming, almost-sorta-librarian behind the web site Modern Mrs. Darcy. Her site is a treasure trove of excellent book recommendations and insight into how to live a sweet life. And her podcast is guaranteed to have you increasing your To Be Read pile.
In our conversation, we talked about my three favorite books—yes, Jane Eyre was one of them—and I snuck in a few more authors and series that I love. Narrowing my list to three was so hard! That’s like trying to choose a favorite recipe. I like a smorgasbord! I also enjoyed the catharsis of spitting out the bile of a book that I hate with a white-hot passion. Then Anne recommended three books she thought I would like, and I knew she totally got me when she suggested The Golem and the Jinni; it’s already in the “Favorites” folder on my Kindle. Our chat was one of my favorite parts of December.
