Annie Helps Us Bring The FUN Back!

I am quite certain that I’ll be in the minority when I say that I just finished reading “That Sounds Fun” by Annie F. Downs WITHOUT having ever listened to her podcast by the same name, but let me assure you that I have already bookmarked several episodes of the podcast that definitely sound very fun to me! Annie’s new book was published by Revell early in the year 2021, and the subtitle gives us a little hint of just what sorts of treasures we will discover within its pages: The Joys Of Being An Amateur, The Power Of Falling In Love, And Why You Need A Hobby. Sounds fun, right?

I have only read one of Annie’s other books, and I’ve sort of heard about her from afar but for some reason never became a true ‘follower’ of her work – but that did not for a moment lessen my enjoyment of this book! From the first page Annie makes her readers feel as though we’ve all been friends for years, and the relatable-ness of her writing style is just so comfortable and relaxed that I quickly settled in, alternately chuckling and sniffling my way through, and totally loving every page.

Her wisdom to readers is simple yet profound, and is backed by her own experiences and growth. She never claims to be a life-coach or anything of the sort – she is just a friend who we can chat with as we take a look at uncovering ways we can each bring a little more FUN into our daily lives. From falling in love with something every day, to embracing our amateur-ness, to finding or bringing back a hobby that we enjoy, this book invites us to link arms with Annie as she “shows us how to find, experience, and multiply your fun today and every day.” My fun thing for today is going to be listening to my first “That Sounds Fun” podcast – what will yours be?
