Links I love

We made it to another Friday. Today looks like the last of the 80-degree days before the weather gets chilly for real here, so I’m planning to hike with Daisy, read some good books, and engage in some year-end planning.

I’m also looking forward to our MMD Book Club watch party on Saturday: I’ve been wanting to see Never Let Me Go since it first came out—a whole ten years ago!

My favorite finds from around the web:

  • Personal Connection: #OwnVoices, Outing, and the Ongoing Quest for Authenticity. “But the way we talk about representation and the call to produce books written by people who share their characters’ identities and lived experiences can be simplistic, and even dangerous. There’s increasing pressure for authors to divulge personal information, even if it endangers them or feels too intimate.”
  • Quarantine Cooking Forced Me to Chill in the Kitchen. “I have been accused of being “very rigid,” but I would suggest that is a mischaracterization. My goal is not to follow recipes, like a sheep. My goal is to realize a vision. My vision, Marcella Hazan’s vision — it doesn’t matter.”

Don’t miss these posts:

  • Our home library. I always get questions about our home library; this post has the answers.

Have a great weekend!

    We also spent last weekend in Brown County, Indiana. We camped at the state park and did several miles of hiking. It was beautiful, but the hiking trails were by far the busiest I’ve ever seen them!

    Thank you for linking the invitation to donate to the Jane Austen House Museum. I just did & I am so grateful for this small way to “engage” with this special place even while stuck closer to home! 🙂

    Hah! It was me who wrote about Maybelline’s Falsies! I’m so glad I made you laugh. And I enjoyed today’s articles, I had no idea du Maurier wrote The Birds, and I am going to make some muffin tin apple pies!

    You Might be able to try that wine club. Kentucky’s Laws changed in July.(resident Louisvillian) I haven’t tried to ship anything yet myself, but I do believe we have this option now.

      In that case I’m waving hello from right here in Louisville! And on the laws, I had no idea! I’ll see what I can find out. Thanks for the tip!
