Today we have a special bonus episode for you! Anne's new book I'd Rather Be Reading: The Delights and Dilemmas of the Reading Life comes out in a little less than a month. Today she's reading you the first chapter. And YOU get to play along in a fun, social, and bibliotherapeutic way.
The first essay is titled Confess Your Literary Sins, and in it, Anne shares how (and why) readers somehow feel compelled to reveal all the guilty secrets of their reading lives—to her.
But she's learned over the years that it feels so much better—and is so much more fun—to get these secrets out into the open.
So listen to the short episode, download the intro and first chapter, and get ready to spill YOUR bookish secrets with the hashtag #confessyourliterary sins.

And psst—that preorder deadline is August 14: don't miss it! Get the lowdown right here.
Happy listening, and happy reading!
