    Definitely passing on the Covid-19 books; I get enough of that in real life. I will be taking you up on the Trader Joe’s corn cookie mix, however. Yum!

    I love that list of 15 cooking tips. Buying kitchen shears was for sure a game-changer.

    I’ve been eyeing Hamnet by Maggie O’Farrell, but wondering if it was too depressing or difficult. I love historical fiction, especially set in the Medieval and Renaissance/Elizabethan time periods, and would love to hear more details from any and all who have read it…

    Thank you for the link on the racism related books available on Overdrive. That is amazing as those titles are so hard to find these days. Already downloaded them!

    I’m still desperately waiting for Trader Joe’s to come to Chattanooga….. I keep sending them notes on their website asking about this, but nothing yet. The nearest TJ’s is still about 2 hours away.
    Loved the article on 15 things about cooking! Good tips there.
    Have a wonderful weekend everybody!

    I’ve been waiting impatiently for Hamnet to come out! For once, I love the U.S. edition better than the U.K. edition.

    I so love your book recommendations!
    On my Wisconsin Public Televison channel I recently watched a clip, of a young African American author who I thought very interesting. His name is Jason Reynolds and not only does he write, he works with many kids all over the country.Worth checking out!

      All children should read stories with African American main characters. Normalizing the lives of ‘others’ is a big step towards growing empathy for every kid. I love when childrens books feature POC living their regular life and that is not the point of the story. A picture book example: Oscar’s half birthday. For kids a bit older: Zoe and Sassafras

    Love the 15 cooking tips! Some I’ve already managed to learn in my almost 60 years on this earth. Some new ones I will adopt. I’m forwarding to my two sons who enjoy cooking – if I do nothing else in this world at least I can pass on cooking tips. Ha.
    I highly endorse your list-making tip, Anne, and thank you for sharing again.
    An interesting article about Wallace Stegner. Crossing to Safety is forever on my TBR and still not read.

    Thank you Anne for the link to the interview with Brit Bennett. I found this to be so informative and it really enhanced my reading experience of The Vanishing Half…which I absolutely loved!

  9. Elizabeth says:

    Wow, great article about Brit Bennett, I can’t wait to read The Vanishing Half. This interview will really add to the depth of reading The Vanishing Half. I really enjoyed her first novel, The Mothers.

    As always, I enjoy your links!
