Anne offers reading recommendations in posts with a targeted purpose, such as “12 feel-good fiction books you can read in an afternoon”. Modern Mrs. Darcy’s 2020 reading challenge can be found here.
Anne Bogel also hosts two podcasts. The first, entitled What Should I Read Next, offers tailored reading recommendations to a guest of the podcast after a conversation about their reading. The second podcast, One Great Book, involves a single book recommendation per short episode.

Looking for an independent bookstore to support? IndieBound allows you to search for titles and then connects you with local independent bookstores from which to buy them.
If you don’t have a local independent bookstore, shop online at Literati Bookstore, a favorite of mine located in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
