Anne Bogel


Anne Bogel is the author of the new book Don't Overthink It: Make Easier Decisions, Stop Second-Guessing, and Bring More Joy to Your Life and the national bestseller I'd Rather Be Reading: the Delights and Dilemmas of the Reading Life. She’s the creator of the top-rated literary podcast What Should I Read Next? and the long-running blog Modern Mrs Darcy. Known by readers, authors, and publishers as a tastemaker through her popular book lists and reading guides, books are the foundation of her site, which has been affectionately dubbed “a lifestyle blog for nerds.” Anne considers that high praise. She lives in Louisville, Kentucky, with her husband and four kids, yellow lab, and two thousand of her favorite books.
