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 people 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 who 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 also command an honored place in the audio library of any book lover.

"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." (AudioFile)

Quick fun read, for readers

I don’t think this book would convince someone who isn’t particularly interested in books, to start reading. But it wasn’t written to that end. No this book is for people who already make books and reading a big part of their lives, and they want to hear from someone who feels the exact same way. It’s like having a long lunch with a friend, 2 hours and 23 minutes, to be precise, because you both can’t stop talking about your favorite reads.

It’s a lovely light read, tho there are a few passages that go on long after a point is made. And the narration is a smidge choppy. But the love and enthusiasm the author has for books, is well conveyed, and if you love reading, I think you will enjoy this book.

Short But Enjoyable

It's a very short book. It should have been either twice as long or half the cost. With that caveat out of the way, it's a book that readers would like. As C.S. Lewis wrote:

Friendship... is born at the moment when one man says to another, 'What! You too? I thought I was the only one.'

If you're an avid reader, there will be topics that resonant with you. And you'll be tickle to know other people have thought the same things, like:
* You realize halfway through a book that it's part of a series, and you inadvertently began with book four.
* You finish a book with a cliff-hanger ending... and realize the author hasn't even begun writing the next installment.
* You realize halfway through a boring flight that your new ebook purchase didn't download.
* Your 'To Be Read' list is unquestionably too long to finish before you die.
* You have countless unread books at home, but you can't resist buying one more.
