My favorite finds from around the web:
• 11 little ways reading makes your life better every day. Not like I think you need convincing.
• How to make and keep friends as an adult. “It’s really easy to have superficial weekend friendships. But in the long run, that’s not going to work for my big emotional self.”
• The long homecoming of Elizabeth Strout. Really interesting read, with tidbits about unexpected things like … her standup comedy experience? (Really!)
• This dad came up with a hilarious way to get his teen off her phone. If you need a little comic relief, these pictures are for you.
