Decision-making is a HUGE part of what we do here on WSIRN. Podcaster and author Emily P. Freeman is an expert in the art of decision-making (she’s literally written the book on it), but when assigned school reading hijacked alllllll her personal reading time… deciding what to read next for pleasure got a little more complicated. That’s where I come in.
Today I’m helping Emily find her way back to confident personal reading decisions. Plus, we’re discussing what to do when you pick up the totally-wrong book by a totally-great author, biographical historical fiction, the first YA book ever written, and Emily’s newest book – releasing today! – The Next Right Thing.
Make sure to check out Emily’s podcast The Next Right Thing, and her new book of the same name, which is out TODAY, APRIL 2. Find all the info you need on her website www.emilypfreeman.com, where you can also sign up for email updates. You can follow her on Twitter and Instagram both @emilypfreeman.
