I’d Rather Be Reading: The Delights and Dilemmas of the Reading Life by Anne Bogel
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I was wandering around a discount store’s book section and saw the enticing cover and title, “I’d Rather Be Reading”. I picked it up and was immediately attracted to it, but set it down. I have so many books I haven’t read, I shouldn’t buy another one. But in another part of the store, on an unrelated shelf, there it was again. Someone else had picked it up, carried it for a while, and in my imagination said, “I have too many books already, I shouldn’t buy another one.” But that’s when I changed my mind and bought it. The one word I can use to describe this book is “Delightful”. Yes, it’s in the subtitle, “The delights and dilemmas of the reading life”, but it is just true. I recommend it to all readers – of whatever genre – because you will find here a friend who knows why you pick up the next book to read.
