If we want to survive these very precedented times, we’d do well to look to those who’ve gone before us.
If you fail a book challenge, does that mean the books win?
Today, sitting beside my father’s hospital bed, I finished I’d Rather Be Reading: The Delights and Dilemmas of the Reading Life by Anne Bogel. This was a Christmas gift — one of three books for book lovers, I received (Book Girl and On Reading Well were the other two in this trinity.) I’ve been […]
The meeting will come to order. This is an update on the plan code-named the Snare. Despite some insistence that we should use an enticing facade to lure our targets (Yes, Mr. Wonka, I see you making those faces) we decided to take a different approach. As Mr. Rochester noted, the pull of the […]

Modern Mrs. Darcy, who has an amazing podcast that is horrible for both my bank account and my to-be-read stack. I love it! These four books include my favorite book from […]
This post contains affliated links. I don’t do Black Friday. Crowds make me antsy. “Don’t miss this deal! Buy! Buy! Buy!” gives me an anxiety attack. We did end up buying a refrigerator yesterday, but that was because our refrigerator died. On Thanksgiving Day. To quote Anne Shirley, “I am convinced of the total depravity […]
