Happy Friday, readers! What does your weekend hold? We’ve been constantly on the go lately, so I hope to catch up on laundry while I finish this audiobook, shelve the books that are piling up on my desk, and spend some time relaxing at home. I hope you have an enjoyable and productive few days.
Now for some reads and good things to kick off your weekend…
- The Pride and Prejudice of Online Fan Culture. Fascinating!
- The Case For Cohousing: Where Responsibilities Are Shared And Life Is A Little Less Lonely. This is such an interesting option for people.
- This Where’s Waldo-style book Where’s Jane? Find Jane Austen Hidden in her Stories is by WSIRN alum (and Jane Austen’s 5x great-niece) Rebecca Smith. Listen to her episode here.
- This lasagna soup recipe was a hit with the whole family. (Thanks to Sarah Bessey and her excellent newsletter for putting the recipe in my inbox.)
- Whatever Your Classroom, Please Teach More Living Poets. “Teenagers are our most buoyant selves; they are also skeptical, curious, stubborn, selfish, selfless. Storytelling—on their own terms, in their own language—is a huge part of their lives. Poetry could reach them.”
- 15 Debut Novels We Can’t Wait to Read in 2020. Promising list! Check these out if you’re looking for a new debut for your 2020 Reading Challenge.
- Bullet Journal’s Journey Through Kickstarter, Publishing, and Production. Great behind-the-scenes interview!
Don’t miss these posts:
- Say what you mean to say. Of all the things I’ve written over the years, this is one I think about the most. Read it.
- 8 movies that are better than their books. You didn’t expect me to say that, did you? Don’t miss the comments.
Have a great weekend!
