Ep 178: The Next Right Thing for your reading life
Decision-making is a HUGE part of WSIRN's purpose. 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.
Today, Anne helps Emily find her way back to confident personal reading decisions. Plus, they discuss 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 The Next Right Thing.
On Friday, Anne's brand new podcast One Great Book entered the world. Unlike What Should I Read Next, which tailors recommendations to a specific reader's taste, One Great Book highlights books Anne loves that you may have missed or forgotten about, but that you’ll be glad to discover—again, or for the first time.
We have 8 books planned for this first volume (the more-bookish term for "season"). New episodes drop on Fridays. Make sure to subscribe to One Great Book on your preferred podcast player!
If one episode per week isn't enough, our Patreon community will get exclusive bonus episodes corresponding with each new One Great Book episode, highlighting an extra title that hasn't been released yet so you can be in the know AND be the first on your library holds list.
