What are your weekend plans? I’ll be at the virtual Jane Austen Festival talking about two of my favorite things: Jane Austen and reading. It’s going to be HOT here, so I’m also counting on some quality reading time in the air conditioning.

Around here we like to start the weekend with interesting reads and products I love; I hope you enjoy today’s round-up.

My favorite finds from around the web:

  • I had such a fun conversation with Neil Pasricha at 3 Books! Fun fact: we recorded this convo in NYC on March 5, and I exchanged my first awkward elbow bump with Neil—before we all knew to social distance—in Union Square Park just before the tape started rolling.

Don’t miss these posts:

  • Sometimes you have to decide you have what it takes. “Our natural human tendency is often to gather data until we feel confident we’re ready to make a decision, so we put off deciding until we feel certain about what choice to make. But that’s not how it works, she says. In fact, it’s the other way around: decisions create confidence.”

Have a great weekend!

    Thanks for the rec on the quick dry nail polish! My 3 year old loves for me to paint her fingers and toes, and I try to always use quick dry polish. I plan to finish The Kitchen House this weekend. I’ll need something light after that for sure.

    I saw that nail polish touted in Real Simple magazine, so I went out and bought it. I polished my nails and within 24 hours, I had chips. Granted, I am hard on my hands (I like to type, play the piano and I wash them a lot) But, I felt like it wasn’t worth it. I wonder if you have a secret to keeping it long lasting? (Like at least a week)

  3. So many books, so little time. I enjoyed this post, and was tempted to buy a book or two. Just need to read the ones I have! Currently reading The Splendid and the Vile by Eric Larson. Excellent nonfiction. My favorite books I’ve read in the past year were the Elena Ferrante series that started with My Brilliant Friend, which you introduced to me. Thank you!

    Oh my, I loved Alex E. Harrow’s The Ransom of Miss Coraline Connelley from your list today! I love her writing and am looking forward to her Once and Future Witches, which will be coming out in October.

    I liked RP1 a lot more than I thought I would but I didn’t like the absolute dearth of strong women characters in the book.
