Ep 230: Don’t overthink your reading life
A note from Anne — I’ve been soooo looking forward to sharing today’s episode with you. Today we’re sharing the live audio from my book tour stop at the Strand in New York City. This evening in their gorgeous rare books room was MAGICAL. The room was packed with avid readers (and quite a few What Should I Read Next alums, which is what we like to call our past guests). It couldn’t have been a better night, and I am so happy and thankful that now you get to listen in in today’s episode.
But. I can’t talk about that night—or this episode—without telling you that sharing it feels bittersweet. This was my second—and last, for now—book tour stop forDon’t Overthink Itand one of the Strand’s last events before closing their doors due to covid-19. My heart goes out to the Strand, its employees, and all of New York City. I hope to see you all again soon.
For the time being, it’s a solace to be able to bring you the live audio from that night at the Strand. This episode is ALL ABOUT What Should I Read Next; I’m reflecting on the show in a way that I really haven’t done publicly. I hope you find it interesting, illuminating, and entertaining. In the next segment I’m joined by a Strand bookseller to do some on-the-fly literary matchmaking for our live audience.
