READING AND LEARNING DOES MORE THAN GIVE US KNOWLEDGE BUT MAKES US BETTER HUMAN BEINGS.
Reading was the first way I learned about myself. Around the age when I was slightly taller than our coffee tables, I found and read one of my mother’s self-help books. I still remember feeling excited at learning how “adults” think and wanting to try these techniques on my mother. My young stomach jumped when I realized that what I had learned from a book could affect the behavior of people around me. I felt like I had a tool at the ready – and I wanted to fill my toolbox quickly and excessively. Sneaking adult-reading level books out of the library became my guilty pleasure.
I believe books help us learn about ourselves. But sometimes life feels too difficult to go it alone. I created my Instagram account because I discovered #bookstagram and connected with So. Many. People!
In 2020 I’m taking it a step bigger and created an inspiring, engaging, thought-provoking, and quirky podcast to talk about and connect with others through a shared love of books.
You’ll witness me letting my inner fangirl out while interviewing the authors of books that actually help you lead a happier and more meaningful life.
If you’ve ever felt left out, stressed out, or bummed out and wondered if you’re just doing it all wrong, I promise you: you’re not and you’re not alone! One of my goals is to connect two circles of people: those who are looking for help with feelings of overwhelm and anxiety with those with tools to deal with it *and who personally deal with the same issues*.
There are no experts on my show: instead, you’ll soon realize we’re all in the same boat and every human being is looking for answers to the questions regarding human suffering and loss.
I’m not shy in asking probing questions and bugging people until I get the info and insight I need so why don’t you listen and learn how to better your own life?

Your Host, Leann Harris
My goal is to draw connections between concepts and then show you how to apply what you’ve read to your life in order to change it for the better. We’ll talk about nonfiction books frequently not on bestseller lists but which point to a fundamental human truth. I cover books from Western and Eastern Psychology, personal development (a.k.a. self-help), social sciences, research, creativity, Philosophy, spirituality, productivity, and sometimes some really great fiction.
