I'm doing a little happy dance because it's my absolute favorite topic today... BOOKS!

I teamed up with my dear friend and writer Dana Sayles to bring you a current book recommendation for your Enneagram type! (BTW, I am including non-Amazon links because Amazon is killing indie bookstores and that hurts my heart. Links to some of my favorite indie bookshops are included!
