Today's guest hails from Austin, TX, and enjoys the simple things in life: wine, books, chips & salsa. As host of The Happy Hour podcast, it might be fair to say Jamie Ivey is a happiness "professional."
Most of our guests can come up with anecdotes about childhoods reading under the covers or sneaking books to the dinner table, but today Jamie gives her perspective as a NON-lifetime reader! We also chat about the 5 different ways you can feel about a book, relationship-centric stories, and good news if you're looking to squeeze more reading time into the day—we share our favorite techniques for reading in the bathtub. 😉
