Happy Friday, friends. My weekend includes making pizza, a birthday celebration, and deciding what to read next. I hope you have a wonderful weekend in store.
My favorite finds from around the web:
- Now available free to libraries without waitlists or holds: The Hate U Give & Me and White Supremacy. This is incredible!
- The novel frugality. Fascinating piece on frugality, American wastefulness, and hoarding.
- ‘If You Can Perform Whiteness, Then What Does It Mean to Be White?’ Great interview with Brit Bennett about The Vanishing Half, which I LOVED.
- These cheerful summer pajamas make me happy.
- 16 New Trader Joe’s Products You Probably Haven’t Seen Yet. I’ll be keeping an eye out for a few of these.
- My German is a little rusty, but I’m still swooning over the new German edition of Maggie O’Farrell’s novel Hamnet, and I’m so enjoying seeing the different covers and titles for various countries. I loved this book. (Check out the American edition here, and the British edition here.)
- Black authors are on all the bestseller lists right now. But publishing doesn’t pay them enough. “And while black authors have always known the biases were there, #PublishingPaidMe showed just how dramatic their effects could be.”
- I thoroughly enjoyed chatting about overthinking, stress, and the body with Alisa on the Revelation Wellness podcast.
- An Anti-Racist Graphic Novel Reading List. Great list!
- Publishers Snap Up Corona Books, From Case Studies to Plague Poetry. Authors can write about whatever they want but I’m wondering if anyone is actually going to want to read these.
Don’t miss these posts:
- A to-do list trick. So simple yet such a game-changer.
- What’s your reading personality? When you’re aware of what and why you read, you get more out of your reading life.
Have a great weekend!
