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.

Professional reviews

"Anne Bogel loves to read--she hides in the bathroom to finish a book, plans trips around visiting favorite bookstores, and visits the library next door multiple times a day. She says she is a fast reader; she also speaks really, really quickly. It can be a challenge to keep up as she relates hilarious anecdotes of carting so many books in the passenger seat of her car that the seatbelt warning is triggered, or her son going to the library without pants on because it is next door so it is just an extension of the driveway, or being obsessed with author acknowledgments. Bogel doesn't mull over the reading life--that would be too sedate. Instead, she busts with enthusiasm and joy, and it is infectious and absolutely charming. A.B. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
