I received a copy of Reading People from the publishing team as a member of the Reading People Launch Team. I had already pre-ordered the book before I was chosen for the team, so you can trust me when I say I'm very excited about this new release!
By now, you know that I'm a huge fan of Anne Bogel, aka Modern Mrs. Darcy. When I discovered her blog a few years ago, I noticed that she wrote a lot about personality and how knowing herself well helped her to live her best life. So when I saw that Anne had a new book coming out this year, I immediately put it on my wish list.
It's called Reading People: How Seeing the World Through the Lens of Personality Changes Everything.
Funny story: a few months before the announcement I had asked Anne for recommendations on where to get started in reading about personality frameworks. Little did I know that Anne was releasing a book, and that it would be the perfect place to start! And here's the thing about this book: it has already changed the way that I go about my daily life, and the way that I encourage my significant other. We've both learned more about ourselves and each other from reading this book, and we agree that we're better off because of it.
As part of the Reading People Launch Team, I had the chance to read an early copy of the book. Next week I'll share my full review as part of the blog tour, but today I want to tell you about some of the great bonuses you'll receive when you pre-order Reading People before its release on September 19th.
First things first, you can get in the mood for learning about personality by taking the What's Your Reading Personality? quiz on Modern Mrs. Darcy.
There are nine reading personalities, and when you take the quiz, Anne not only tells you what your type means, but also gives you some recommendations based on your reading personality.
My reading personality is the escapist.
So what did I think about the recommendations? Well, I loved Outlander and The Night Circus and the rest are still on my to-read list! The one title I was hesitant to add to my list was The Royal We, but after chatting with a few other escapist readers (who assured me that it wasn't cheesy or silly but actually really good!) I'm looking forward to reading it.
I agree with Anne's assessment that I primarily read to escape. I think that's why I love fantasy (new worlds), historical fiction (new time periods), and mysteries (plots that keep me occupied) and generally have a harder time getting into non-fiction (too much of the real world).
If you enjoyed taking this quiz, then you'll definitely enjoy the book, which delves deeper into the elements of personality and how to make changes in your life that work best for you!
Now, let's talk about those pre-order bonuses!
When you pre-order a copy of the book (you can order through any retailer), you get access to:
Anne's "What's Your Reading Personality?" Class, in which she goes into more detail about the reading personality types. (This class is available in her shop for $15, but when you pre-order you get it for free!)
A FREE download of the Reading People audiobook! (P.S. Anne recorded the audiobook herself, so if you're a fan of What Should I Read Next?, you know listening to Anne is so much fun!)
To redeem both of these pre-order bonuses, just have your invoice number on hand and fill out this form.
