Dear readers, it’s Tuesday once again. Ready for a little literary matchmaking?
Today’s guest is Shaney Swift, a massage therapist and social justice advocate from Chicago, Illinois. If you’ve been around What Should I Read Next for a while, you know I can be a bit of a personality-type geek, and Shaney shares that enthusiasm — prepare for a lot of nerding out! Today we talk about scanning and deep-diving reading styles, books that help us understand our differences, and what to read next when you feel like your life is in limbo.
