What are your weekend plans? I’m starting to read Summer Reading Guide 2021 books in earnest, and I have some serious tidying to do. But first I need to finish this great book recommended by a What Should I Read Next guest and our producer Brenna!

I hope you enjoy these interesting reads and fun things to get your weekend started.

My favorite finds from around the web:

    I’m hoping to get a little sunshine and maybe finally trim up my overgrown bushes! Also I’m just about done with beard with me and moving on to beard necessities of the winston brother’s series by reid.

      My cousins and I played it last year until my 20 year old cousin called my brother a f-ing MF-er and then we had to switch to a different game because my grandpa got irritated.

    In a day full of emotion, and pride in our country again, Amanda Gorman reduced me to ugly sobs. What a beautiful poem, and beautiful recitation! I can’t wait to see what she accomplishes in the future.

    Anne, We take our Sorry! seriously at our house! To new players it feels like a game that depends on luck but fans know that there is serious strategy involved! We love playing this with houseguests because the learning curve is small and everyone seems to enjoy playing it.

    I’m finishing West With The Night, just started Leave The World Behind, and will (finally) dive into Don’t Overthink It over the weekend.

    I was just playing an interview excerpt with Amanda Gorman a bit ago. My 6-year-old son perked up and said, “I know who that is: the girl in the yellow coat!” ❤️ I hope she becomes a household name.

    I miss playing Sorry with my children! Sometimes we would put a Skittle or m & m or other small piece of candy on random squares at various times. If you land on that square, you get the candy. Fun times! Enjoy!

    Thanks for posting the woman of color link, so many good books coming out! I am actively trying to read more woman of color books, so many good stories outside my own experience.
    Amanda Gorman, was such an inspiration! Her reading was just beautiful, we need more poetry in the world.

    The Julia Child series looks intriguing.

    I took a course in college where Zora Neale Hurston was featured, and we took a trip down (from Indiana) to Eatonville and the Zora Neale Hurston Festival in January of that year. We didn’t fall into Hurston’s grave but did seek it out (pretty low key and we definitely weren’t looking for snakes in the grass). That was a fun article to read and remember.
