Links I love

What are you up to this weekend? I’m planning on doing a little community service with my kids, reading good books, and tidying my office, where the book situation has gotten well and truly out of control. I hope you have something to look forward to in the coming days.

I probably over-consumed the news this week, but I also read, watched, and viewed a good number of things that aroused my interest or brought me joy to read. In these regular Links I Love, I get to begin the weekend by sharing those with you here. I hope you enjoy the new edition, featuring journaling, houseplants, bright eyes, the public domain, and more.

My favorite finds from around the web:

  • Public Domain Day 2021. And there’s already a few Great Gatsby retellings as a result. Are there any other retellings from this pool that you’re hoping to see? (I personally enjoyed Ed Tarkington’s Gatsby riff The Fortunate Ones this month.)
  • Swimming in Very Cold Water Keeps Me Sane. “It wasn’t so much that I planned on swimming into mid-November in a lake in Northern California at 3,017 feet, as I just kept going every single day and over time, the water kept getting colder and colder.”

Don’t miss these posts:

Have a great weekend!

    I forwarded the link about famous literary characters having dogs to my daughter the college English professor. Those classics would become less classic but they would sure be more fun! Also, I didn’t know you could write a one-line review! I’m going to try to do that this year, for everything I read. I appreciate your Reading Life) Challenge! The printouts are really helpful. This year I want to Read for Comfort, but I will try my Dewey Decimal challenge again. January is 000, February is 100, etc. Thank you!

    I ordered “The Power of Writing it Down” thanks to you. The journaling article you linked is perfect timing. Thank you!

    I may try to do the one-line reviews. I have so much trouble remembering books when I finish them and it may be a way to trigger my memory!

    Your posts about Wigtown were some of my favorite ever. I can’t believe it’s just been two years ago… with all that’s gone on, it seems like another lifetime! Think I’ll peruse the Wigtown posts again, for a mental vacation while we can’t travel. Thanks for that reminder!

    I remember a few months ago, you were looking for recommendations for mascara. Someone recommended Thrive Causemetics, and I ordered some, along with some eye shadows!! I love all of it! Now, today, I’ve ordered the eye brightening cream!! Who knew I could get such great beauty recommendations from a blog about books!! 😁💕✅
