Links I love

Today feels not just like the start of the weekend but of full-on holiday mode—it feels good, but I’m reminding myself I still have lots of work to do! This weekend I’m legitimately pumped to organize my spice drawers and finish wrapping gifts, and I’m hoping to finish my current read from the Winter Book Preview.

A couple of housekeeping notes. YES, we are hosting a 2021 Reading Challenge—check the blog next week! And we won’t be posting Links I Love next Friday; I’ll be offline for Christmas.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend, and that you enjoy these interesting reads and good things to get it started.

My favorite finds from around the web:

  • Our Shared Unsharing. “This year, it seemed like no matter who you are, whatever you posted, you had a high chance of getting it wrong in some way, because many of the values we’ve come to expect (and enjoy) on Instagram feel incorrect for this moment.”
  • Turns Out It’s Pretty Good: Aging. “I decided that I had a choice. I could desperately scramble to re-create my old life in some new, hopefully better, iteration. Or, with the very pretense of success as I knew it now burned to the ground, I could start living in a completely new way.”

Join me for Friends & Fiction!

I’ll be meeting up with Mary Kay Andrews, Kristin Harmel, Kristy Woodson Harvey, Patti Callahan Henry, and Mary Alice Monroe on December 30 at 7pm ET on their weekly Facebook Live show, FRIENDS AND FICTION. We’ll talk about writing, books, and life. I can’t wait!

Don’t miss these posts:

Have a great weekend!

    Anne, you’re right, #7 on that list is absolutely something to be proud of. Congratulations!

    A request- can you just call it chai latte? Chai means tea, so it’s annoying for the tens (hundreds?) of millions of people who refer to tea as chai/cha to see this redundancy on a daily basis. Thank you!

    I loved Dolly’s interview, what a girlfriend she is to all of us! And I love the idea of a Shelf Portrait (I must try a still..) but was frustrated that she didn’t actually have many books on her shelves and it was hard for us to see them. Not your fault, of course, so thank you for the link!

    Earlier in the year I received a digital ARC for Float Plan and it is a must read! This may sound odd to say about a romance but it is a life affirming book. Definitely recommend!
