Today’s guest is Bethany Armstrong, a lifelong reader who describes herself as the kind of kid who always had a book in her hand. After studying literature in college, Bethany suffered through a period of bookish burnout. But a surprising thing re-invigorated Bethany’s reading experience... you'll have to listen to find out what it was. 

Today Bethany’s reading life is thriving, and in this episode she and Anne dive into the specifics—they talk about how it’s alllllll about the story, and why it’s important to Bethany to keep the balance in her reading life. And when Bethany shares the book she hates … well, she's sure some of you will want to come after her with pitchforks when you find out what it is.

Also mentioned: 

• "The Courthouse Ring: Atticus Finch & the limits of Southern liberalism", by Malcolm Gladwell via The New Yorker
• Malcom Gladwell interviewed on KET

Anne here - my book  Reading People: How Seeing the World Through the Lens of Personality Changes Everything  is coming this September 19! This is the story of how my long journey digging into 7 popular personality frameworks changed my life for the better, and how you can put those frameworks to work for yourself to make real, lasting change in your life, in your work, and in your relationships without going through quite so many hard knocks yourself.

To get yourself in the mood for all things personality, take our reading personality quiz. it’s fast and free and easy to take, and hopefully a lot of fun as well. And if you want to know even more, I made a class for you! We'll spend an hour diving deeper into all nine types and give each set of readers their own book recommendations. The class is $15 — OR you can get it for free when you pre-order Reading People! You ALSO get a free audiobook download of the book when it comes out on September 19. This is a terrific deal and a rare opportunity to get the book in two different versions, PLUS my reading personality class at no additional cost.
