This is probably the first person ever besides Se7en to answer yes!
Of course, afterwards, I sent him a link to Gretchen Rubin's Better than Before book (because I'd told him in the meeting he's an upholder!) and her podcast.
These things thrill me like no other.

There are also episodes on what gives each type energy, and motivation, and such. So useful. I had a HUGE aha listening to the energy episode.
If you don't know of it yet, download it from the itunes store or they have their own app for Android phones.
And prepare to be amazed!
I was thinking about something the other day - I'm such a Big Reader and yet I don't belong to a book club, I don't like reading outside my genres nor do I like to particularly discuss books. I can discuss and tell you about non-fiction but that's it.
Anyone have any thoughts?
Modern Mrs Darcy has a podcast, What should I read next, which is causing big waves all around the internet but I'm not that into it precisely because of the above.
The guest tells her 3 books they love, 1 they hate and then she gives them 3 recommendations.
These are all bookish people (people I think of as English majors!) so most of the time I've not even heard of these books.
The thing that makes me click over and listen occasionally is if a guest is someone I know.
A couple of weeks ago, I listened to one podcast and this woman hated a book I loved. I don't know why I got so riled up but I did. But that's when I realised, better for me to quietly read things and write my little reviews on Goodreads (by the way, I'm in the top 5% of reviewers) and occasionally blog on the non-fiction ones, but I feel far too passionately about things to share those in public!
Do you find yourself passionately sharing about books you read?
PS if there are any people who are interested in buying physical non-fiction books from me (really cheap, like R20 a book, I need to get rid of books before the move), let me know and I'll send you pics from my phone.
