April New Books Megalist – The Sequel!

It’s Tuesday – you know what that means! Say it with me now: NEW BOOK DAY. And holy cats, are there so many great ones! So many, in fact, that I couldn’t narrow it down, so I’ve decided to share another GIANT list of books coming out today, so you can break your TBRs with book goodness. And on this week’s episode of the All the Books! Rebecca and I talked about a few awesome books we loved, including Shot-Blue, The Double Bind, and If We Were Villains.

This week’s newsletter is sponsored by Every Body Yoga by Jessamyn Stanley.

From the unforgettable teacher Jessamyn Stanley comes Every Body Yoga, a book that breaks all the stereotypes. It’s a book of inspiration for beginners of all shapes and sizes. It’s a book for readers already doing yoga, looking to refresh their practice. It’s a how-to book with directions for 50 basic yoga poses and 10 sequences to practice at home. It’s a book that challenges the issues of body acceptance and the meaning of beauty. Most of all, it’s a book that changes the paradigm, showing us that yoga isn’t about how one looks, but how one feels.
