Publisher's Summary

We know there are certain things we must have to survive - food, shelter, and safety to name a few. But there are also aspects of life that truly allow us to be joyful and fulfilled. For popular podcaster and bestselling author Annie F. Downs, fun is close to the top of that list. Few would argue that having fun doesn't enrich our lives, but so much gets in the way of prioritizing it. Tough days, busyness, and feelings that are hard to talk about keep us from the fun that's out there waiting to be found.

With That Sounds Fun, Annie offers an irresistible invitation to understand the meaning of fun, to embrace it and chase it, and to figure out what, exactly, sounds fun to you - then do it! Exploring some research and sharing some thoughts behind why fun matters, she shows you how to find, experience, and multiply your fun. With her signature storytelling style and whimsical vulnerability, Annie is the friend we all need to guide us back to staying true to ourselves and finding the fun we need.

Didn’t Realize How Much I Would Enjoy

I listen to the That Sounds Fun Podcast so I wasn’t sure I would get much “new” out of this book. Boy, was I wrong! I loved getting to know more about Annie and especially embracing my amateur qualities!

What a gift Annie has for sharing her heart and making us all feel like a friend!

I’ve been a long time listener of the podcast, so naturally listening to the audiobook was a no brainer! She writes just like she speaks and I think that is such a talent! Annie helps reshape what we think it means to be an amateur and how to find the joy and fun in all the seasons and experiences of life.
I can HARDLY WAIT for the That Sounds Fun Podcast tour this summer! Seeing Annie in Charlotte, NC ... that sounds fun to me!

Encouraging Read

If you’re looking for something encouraging with a great mix of lightheartedness and serious this is it. Annie reminds us of what it means to just try new things and be an amateur. And that having hobbies is really an option.

Savor this!

The main takeaway that I got from this book was to SAVOR the moments that you are in. Take everything in and let it sink into your heart and transform your mind. Life is what we make it, so MAKE IT FUN!

I loved this book!

Fun! It was fun to get to know more of Annie's story. She gave some great advice on how to bring more fun into our lives. I loved the idea of looking back at your childhood and what you did for fun then...would surely be fun as an adult. Thank you, Annie and congrats on your success with the book!

The perfect balance

Annie strikes the perfect balance of meaningful and fun, are we surprised? With each chapter she builds on truth and her wisdom and joy dig deeper and deeper. I found myself giggling and nodding my head in agreement at points while one chapter made me ugly cry in the best most healing way. Read this book, you’ll be glad you did.
