Links I love

Happy Saturday! I’m off to the bakery before they sell out of my faves, then we’re kicking off our extended family celebrations and wrapping up a storm. I hope you have a lovely weekend in store.

My favorite finds from around the web:

  • Last year I made this holiday star bread and it was sooo worth it. I’ll be making it again in the next few days. (Basically I’ll take any excuse I can to buy Nutella.) It looks complicated but is so easy.

Favorite Instagram:

Oh there’s no place like the library for the holidays 🎶 Follow me on Instagram @annebogel.

On the blog:

Yesterday I shared the most popular posts of 2019. It’s always fascinating to me to see what the general public most wants to read about.

One year ago: A beginner’s guide to happy, healthy houseplants. Knowing that many of you would also like to raise your status from “plant killer” to “not-so-hopeless-after-all,” I shared some of the things I learned on my way to becoming a Plant Lady.

Two years ago: 20 Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award winners to read to complete your Reading Challenge.

Three years ago: What worked for me in 2016. I’ll be sharing what worked for me in 2019 soon. It’s always interesting to see how this evolves from year to year.

Four years ago: 7 books that will make you a better human. Have you ever read a book and thought the world would be a better place if EVERYONE read this?

Five years ago: Last minute gifts for girls. In case you’re scrambling!

On What Should I Read Next:

I let you in on an ongoing conversation that’s been unfolding at my house for nearly twenty years now. My guest is my husband Will, and I’m sure you won’t be surprised to hear that we talk about books ALL THE TIME, pretty much since we first met.

On One Great Book:

The Snow Child is an atmospheric story about love, loss, and the wildness of nature, perfect for cozy winter reading. (This is our last episode of One Great Book for now—listen to hear more about that.)

Have a great weekend!

    Reading through today’s post made me realize just how thankful I am for you, and how much you make me a better, well rounded person in so many areas of my life, not just reading!

    Just want to wish you a *Merry Christmas* and thank-you for producing your podcast – WSIRN. I’m only on Ep 50, so have a ways to go to catch up.
    They accompany me on my long runs. And have expanded my reading repertoire +++ but most importantly they add CHEER to my day.
