And did you hear? We’re throwing a What Should I Read Next? LIVE party on Saturday, November 4! Malaprop’s Bookstore/Café, 6 pm, free and open to all, mark your calendars.
My favorite finds from around the web:
• Little Free Libraries and the Bookish Sisters of Mercy. When my friend Leigh was in town, she talked me into culling my bookshelves (bless her), and then we drove around the neighborhood stocking the local little free libraries. And then Leigh wrote a post about it.
• You can live in the Long Island mansion that inspired The Great Gatsby! For a cool 16.9 million …
• The art of finding what you didn’t know you were looking for. “I often don’t know what I’m looking for, and even if I do, what I actually find is more often than not better than what I set out to find.”
