Happy Friday, friends! I hope you have a lovely weekend ahead of you. We’re still dealing with sickness at my house (ugh) but I hope to go for a long run, keep (re)-reading this book, and get ready for a last-minute work trip to NYC. I’ve never been in the winter: if you have any recommendations for things I should do or see or eat, please tell me in comments!
My favorite finds from around the web:
- Chrissy Metz Is Bringing “Gorge: My Journey Up Kilimanjaro at 300 Pounds” Adaptation to Amazon. I’m behind on the news but this looks very interesting.
- What Have You Learned in the Last Decade? I love this kind of reflection.
- I just got a new pair of these favorite jeans (after wearing them 200+ times and putting a hole in them where a hole doesn’t belong).
- Wendell Berry: Advice for New Readers. If you’ve been wanting to read Berry’s work, this will help you figure out where to start.
- The Most Anticipated Books of 2020, According to Goodreads. Well of course I’m DELIGHTED to see DON’T OVERTHINK IT featured here! (Be sure to check out the preorder bonuses.)
- If you think readers keep sending me links to delightful mugs and such like this one, you’re exactly right.
- The Rust Belt Didn’t Have to Happen. Fascinating profile of J. Irwin Miller, a prominent industrialist who used his influence to build up his town Columbus, Indiana for success.
- 14 Parlor Games to Bring Back This Holiday Season. I recently hosted a bunch of young teens at my house for pasta and parlor games. This list came in handy.
