My favorite finds from around the web:
• Cool bookish ideas for your bullet journal. Very cool. And a wee bit overwhelming.
• 7 steps to internet sanity. “Just like money, time, and influence, the Internet is inherently neutral. What makes it bad or good is what you choose to do with it.”
• Book-vending machine dispenses suspense. “Every book a surprise. No two alike. Collect all 112 million titles.”
Now read this:
Wondering what to read to make sense of the political climate we’ve suddenly found ourselves in? I still don’t get it, but I get it a little better thanks to J.D. Vance’s memoir Hillbilly Elegy. I live in Kentucky, I have family in rust belt Ohio—two important regions he writes about, explaining the divide that exists in our country now. If you’re constructing a post-election reading list, add this one to it.
On the blog:
One year ago: A few November favorite things. I had forgotten about half of these and was glad to be reminded.
Two years ago: What makes a great book club novel? “Sometimes bad books—or at least seriously flawed ones—make for much better book club discussions. They may be far from greatness, but golly, is there a lot to talk about.”
Three years ago: There is exactly enough time. “Everything changed the day she figured out there was exactly enough time for the important things in her life.”
Four years ago: A shopping strategy for women who hate to shop. This is a serious throwback to my first Stitch Fix fix, since that I’ve gotten dozens of them at this point.
Have a great weekend!
