I just finished this and I relayed to it so much ❤️.

Gonna listen while I get chores in.
I don‘t know what to read next. I keep staring at my bookshelf and just can‘t choose. It seems my DNF list is bigger than my Read list this year.
I am using the tagged book for this prompt for my #popsugarchallenge
Yup. I'm a reader and I read about reading. :)
Picking up the new Philip Pullman tomorrow as it‘s the first chance I‘ve had to get to town! Wanted something to last tonight and bus commute in the morning, but read with a cup of tea!
Nice easy reflection on being a reader. Loved the chapter on bookworm problems, probably things we could all relate to!
Now I still need something for my commute. Poetry here we come.
I must confess to having a weakness for books on books/reading and this was no exception. I saw myself reflected in many of these pages. A nice read for an afternoon.
Annabel Lee was my book companion for this one. #CatsofLitsy
Day 5: When I moved back the States I became obsessed with Modern Mrs Darcy & the What Should I Read Next podcast. Anne Bogel's newest book about reading is gorgeous on the inside and outside! #7days7covers #covercrush
I listened to this on audio, so it was a bit like listening to a long podcast of hers. I like Anne Bogel and I like her book.
Serious readers will recognize a lot of what Bogel discusses in this brief book of short essays about reading. For a while, Bogel lived next door to a public library and, while she was already a reader, this experience shaped her profoundly. She discusses bonding over books, the joys and lessons of keeping a reader journal, and the powerful role books play in people's lives.
My Sunday afternoon read! 😊📚📖
Getting my hair done (for the first time in 5 years!) and "I'd Rather Be Reading"! ??
Absolutely loved it 😍📚. I‘m a sucker for books about the reading life and Anne did not disappoint! I read this in just a couple hours this afternoon, and actually like it better than Ex Libris: Confessions of a common reader. This one just spoke to me more. FYI if you aren‘t listening to Anne‘s podcast What Should I Read Next you should 😊. It‘s fantastic. I borrowed this from the library but will be getting my own copy ASAP
My English teacher did the same thing, only for me it was 7th grade not 5th..and yes the reaction was the same. Not a dry eye in the house. Boys and girls both
"...I'm grateful for my one life, but I'd prefer to live a thousand—and my favorite books allow me to experience more on the page than I ever could in my actual life." -Anne Bogel, I'd Rather Be Reading
Fabulous article from The Atlantic.
I finished my summer reading requirements in the wee hours of the 7th day (a week ago yesterday), but I missed my regular library visit last week (out of town for Number One Son's spectacular wedding). Today, I collected my T-shirt. 📚💙😎
I‘ve barely been home from vacation for two weeks, and I‘m already looking at planes and trains for #readingretreat2020 (no automobiles because I‘m not crazy enough to try driving on the wrong side of the road). Maybe I‘ll get back to Heathrow and have another giant cup of tea. #londoncalling #wanderingjune
I enjoy Bogel‘s podcast, “What Should I Read Next?”
This is a collection of short essays on Bogel‘s reading life. Most of what is covered in the book Bogel has talked about on her podcast, so nothing much new here. Still, reading this collection was a pleasant enough way to spend a relaxing hour or two after a stressful day at work.
A great day at the library! I‘d Rather Be Reading, Giovanni‘s Room, Books For Living, In The Wolf‘s Mouth, and Disappearing Earth all available!
Such a wonderful book about reading, reading habits and about being a bookworm. Divided in 16 chapters Anne Bogel talks about different parts of a bookworm's life. There are several chapters you smile the whole time while you read them, just because you are quite like that. A cosy book for everyone who loves to read and who is proud to be a reader. 😍 @rubyslippersreads thank you for sending me this book. 😍
I finished my first summer reading log at 1-something this morning! Woo hoo! I'll go get my T-shirt prize this week.
I didn't have sticky flags handy most of the time I was reading. I may have to buy my own copy and read it again soon. Quite a few of her reading habits match mine or at least resonate. Delightful little collection of essays! [I stayed up too late last night—just one more essay....]
Really excited about the 2 new editions to my bookish mug collection - the middle bookshelf mug and the right library card mug :)
Anne Bogel (of What Should I Read Next? podcast) narrates her own work in this short, uplifting collection of thoughts about our reading lives. Littens will identify with much, if not all, that she has to say. I especially enjoyed the chapter about reading author acknowledgements. I was sad, however, to learn that Bogel feels the need to apologize for reading some kinds of books, as when mentioning Drowning Ruth: “Confession: Oprah pick.”
June 1 is one of my favorite days of the year—Summer Reading starts at the library! By 12:13 this morning, I had registered online. [I might have done it sooner, but I was busy logging my last book read in May, which I finished just before midnight.] Anyway, I posted this screenshot on my library trustee Facebook page before 😴; I‘ll drop in to the celebration at main library this afternoon. Happy Summer Reading, dear Littens!
I feel a bit stupid for not knowing that it was William Morris who is famous for saying “Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.” I thought that was Marie Kondo‘s original idea. In her book, Anne Bogel encourages people to keep books they‘ll never read as long as they find the covers beautiful—not at all in line with the KonMari method.
If my real life reminds me of something I‘ve read in a book, I‘m reading well.
DH was shocked to get home from last night's hockey game at nearly 1 am this morning to find me still working on my jigsaw puzzle and reading with my ears [and I didn't stop until well after he went to bed]. Before he left for tonight's game, he asked "What are you doing tonight?" I just held up my book. Follow-up question (with judgy tone): "Until what time?" Hey—I'm already in bed! That's promising, right? ?
