Today Bethany’s reading life is thriving, and in this episode we dive into the specifics—we talk about how it’s alllllll about the story, and why it’s important for her to keep the balance in her reading life. When she shares the book she hates … well, and I understand why she thinks some of you will want to come after her with pitchforks when you find out what it is.
Housekeeping announcement: there will be no WSIRN episode on August 15th. As you know, my book Reading People: How Seeing the World Through the Lens of Personality Changes Everything is coming out on September 19, but what you probably don’t know is that I have another book due soon! This one is scheduled to come out in 2018. Books don’t write themselves, and we’re taking a week off to make sure book #2 actually gets turned in on time. We’ll be back on August 22 with your regularly scheduled Tuesday morning episode.
