If you're an avid bookworm like me, you probably already know all about the queen of reading, Anne Bogel. Anne is the blogger behind Modern Mrs. Darcy, the host of What Should I Read Next? Podcast, and the author of Reading People: How Seeing the World Through the Lens of Personality Changes Everything.
I've been a fan of Anne's blog for years, so when I got the chance to be a guest on her podcast, I was so excited to actually talk to her that I nearly lost my cool. That podcast episode was the thing that launched TST into a higher sphere of the bookstagram world, and I have Anne to thank for it. So many of you, Dear Readers, are here because you heard me there first!
Last fall, Anne released her first non-fiction book, all about personality. You can read all of my thoughts about that here and here. I absolutely loved that book -- it was the impetus for my research into personality and self-help books this year.
Anne has a new book releasing on September 4th, and I am so eager to get my advanced copy in the mail! I'm working with the launch team again this year, so that I can share some sneak peeks and details with you all ahead of time. Of course, you know I still ordered myself a copy of the book when it releases because 1) it's a way to show support for a bookworm I adore and 2) I want all of those pre-order bonuses.
Speaking of Pre-Order Bonuses!
The deadline for submitting your receipt for physical pre-order bonuses (which you receive for ordering more than one copy) is August 14th, and the final deadline for digital pre-order bonuses is September 3rd. In my opinion, one of the best bonuses is a live class with Anne on August 2nd, which means you want to get your receipt submitted ASAP for access to the live session!
Pre-order one copy of I’d Rather Be Reading, you'll receive these digital bonuses:
- A FREE digital download of the audio version read by Anne to be emailed on release day
- Access to Anne’s new class “7 Ways to Get More Out of Your ReadingLife”, live on August 2 (Don't fear, if you miss the August 1st deadline for attending the live class, you can watch the recorded version by pre-ordering any time before September 3rd.)
- And beautiful digital artwork from the book
Preorder two or more copies and receive:
- All of the above digital bonuses
- A book plate signed by Anne
- An I’d Rather Be Reading bookmark
- A postcard print from the book
- Bookish stickers from the Modern Mrs Darcy shop
How to Submit Your Receipt for Pre-Order Bonuses
- After you preorder, take your receipt and go to I’dRatherBeReading.com.
- Scroll down, and click “I preordered one copy” or “I preordered multiple copies.” Complete the form.
- (If you buy two books in two separate transactions, that’s absolutely fine! Just submit both receipts.)
- These bonuses disappear just before midnight on September 3rd, so make sure to submit before then!
Needless to say, this is one of my most-anticipated fall releases. I'll be sharing my personal thoughts on I'd Rather Be Reading as soon as I have it in hand, but being a long-time fan of Anne's writing, I'm predicting that it'll speak right to my bookworm heart.
