Links I love.

My favorite finds from around the web:

The power of taking reading breaks. “Fast Company recently collected productivity tips from several dozen top designers, and one of the recurring themes was the power of the reading break to re-energize and reflect.”

Making our own magic. “I think this is part of the work of adulthood: recognizing that we are, largely, responsible for our own internal weather. We can choose – ideally, with wisdom and grace – how to respond to, and move forward from, what happens to us.”

Your iPhone is ruining your posture—and your mood. “The next time you reach for your phone, remember that it induces slouching, and slouching changes your mood, your memory and even your behavior.”

20 problems only avid readers will understand.

library haul december 16

What I’m reading this week:

That’s Wednesday’s library haul. I blazed through Life and Other Near-Death Experiences, and just started My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She’s Sorry.

I’m also resolved to finish an audiobook I started several month’s ago: John Gardner’s On Becoming a Novelist.

On the blog:

One year ago: The life-changing magic of tidying up.

Two years ago: Is that novel worth your time? Turn to page 69 to find out.

Three years ago: Books I abandoned in 2012. These were fun to look back on, because all of these remain on my TBR list.

Four years ago: Want to set New Year’s goals that really matter? Read this first.

Have a great weekend!

      Yes to everything on this list – so funny, but also not funny because I’ve actually been irritated by most of those things.

    Hi Anne do you have a reading challenge every year? I joined your blog towards the end of this year and like the idea of being challenged to find the time to read. I have just discovered Goodreads but I like the way yours seems to be more manageable re selection of good books to delve into. Hope your Christmas provides you with plenty of time to curl up with your book of the moment!

    Can’t wait to hear your thoughts on the grandmother thank you book. I listened to it this week and laughed and cried and laughed and cried. I loved it. Like others I’d like a sequel and a movie.
