Get in My Kindle selections are the books I can’t wait to get my hands on. They’re the books I want to start a conversation around RIGHT NOW, whether or not they’re already in my Kindle, on my nightstand, or placed on pre-order to show up like a random gift to myself after I’d forgotten I ordered it. 😉 All the details about the book, including where you can purchase it, can be found at the end of the post.
If you’re an avid reader, you should know who Anne Bogel is. She’s a fellow book lover who has the jobs most book lovers want. She shares about all things books and reading on her website, Modern Mrs. Darcy, and does “a little literary matchmaking” on her weekly podcast “What Should I Read Next?” Anne is also the author of the book Reading People: How Seeing the World through the Lens of Personality Changes Everything, a champion of independent bookstores, and the lovely voice in my ear that helps me find book related podcasts, events, subscription services, and gifts. In short, she’s the reader I want to be.
I’m not a personality test junkie (I was strongly encouraged into taking the Enneagram by a job application asking me for my number), so I didn’t pick up reading people. However, when I heard about her new release coming out September 4, 2018, I started looking for the pre-order to go up so I could hit the buy button.
Full disclosure: I applied to be a part of the launch team for this book. I wanted to be among the first to know everything about it and share it abroad. Alas, I wasn’t chosen for the launch team, but I received a lovely email inviting me to be a part of the street team which included the introduction and first chapter. This little sneak peek into the book did nothing but make me that more impatient to have it in my hot little hands.
I’d Rather Be Reading explores the personal nature of the reading life, discussing things like how to choose good books, how to deal with the pain of choosing a bad one, and why we connect so deeply with some books. It also promises to give readers a peek into other readers’ lives, which is one of the many reasons I listen to Anne’s podcast. This book promises to be a fun one, and I for one can’t wait to read it.
If this sounds like a title you would be interested in, here are all the necessary details:

Are you looking forward to I’d Rather Be Reading? What book(s) are you eagerly anticipating?
This isn’t my first “Get in My Kindle” rodeo. I also wrote this post about how I can’t wait to read Butterface, Avery Flynn’s new romantic comedy. All others going forward can be found under the category Get in My Kindle, including the one about the juicy memoir that promises to be an amazing read, coming up on the next installment. Any guesses on what book that might be?
