Two Booked Up

20-12-2022 • 14 mins

Two Booked Up is a podcast about personal and professional development books, but Shelley and Rowena also love to read fiction!

So today on Two Booked Up, in another of the bonus episodes that make up the Summer Series, Shelley and Rowena are singing the praises of fiction!  Because reading a great story is not only a great brain break and leisure activity, it can be useful in your business, your career and in your day-to-day life.

Sharing lots of fascinating research into the benefits and advantages of reading fiction, this is an episode worth listening to, even if (or especially if!) you don’t usually read fiction or haven’t done for some time.

You just may be convinced after you listen!
