An inspiring and candid memoir about rediscovery and the unabashed thrill of reading by the creator and host of the award-winning podcast Moms Don’t Have Time to Read Books.
In Booked, one of the most influential and enthusiastically vocal compatriots in the publishing world shares her struggles and triumphs along with the written words that have changed her life.
Zibby was a prestigiously educated stay-at-home mom in a four-story Manhattan town house. No reason to be unhappy, right? If only depression worked that way. Overwhelmed, maddeningly stressed, and quietly suffering after a series of devastating personal losses, Zibby was losing what made her her. Fortunately, there was an escape. It was the same one Zibby had sought out time and again since her paralyzingly shy childhood: books. Other people’s stories were her empathetic companions teaching her how to cook, grieve, cope after failed relationships, find love, survive rock bottom, and start anew. Above all, books gave her meaning and the courage to follow her calling and tell her own story, with real-life plot twists she never saw coming - some tragic, some joyous, all transformative.
Enriching and deeply personal, this touching memoir will encourage readers to grab a good book, feel less alone, and rediscover their own voices.
