Links I love

What’s in store for your weekend? Around here we’re celebrating a birthday and doing some much-needed spring cleaning, as well as (I hope) reading piles of great books. I have so many promising titles piling up on my TBR!

Speaking of books, I hope you caught the cover reveal for my book journal coming out this September. Thanks for your kind words, and to answer a few frequently-asked questions: it will lay flat when open, it’s available for preorder in the U.K. and also, through Book Depository, around the world, and signed preorders are available through my local indie. Thanks for your enthusiasm—it means the world!

My favorite finds from around the web:

  • I love this quote from Their Eyes Were Watching God! We included this print in our spring MMD Book Club boxes. (Carrot Top Paper Shop has a special deal on: today through Saturday only, use code SPRING30 to get 30% off all totes, stickers, and Literary Banners.)
  • The Delight of Dining With Others. “This, I realize, is what I miss most about pre-pandemic life. It’s not just the act of going to the movies, or out to dinner or to a party, it’s the fact that by engaging in these things, we are reminded of how closely we are all connected.”

Don’t miss these posts:

  • 11 books that are better in the spring. These books have themes that coincide with earth’s bursting to life after a long, cold winter: books about renewal and rebirth, about second chances and making things new.

Upcoming Events:

  • March 31, 1 pm ET: Their Eyes Were Watching God discussion: Time for our MMD Book Club discussion of Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston! (This will be available as a replay for members who cannot attend live.)
  • April 6, 7 pm ET: 12 Things Readers Should Know About Publishing: This is an MMD Book Club event. This year in publishing has been a doozy. The game has changed, but here is what you as a reader need to know. It’s no coincidence we’re doing this the month before the Summer Reading Guide comes out … (Classes are available as replays for members who cannot attend live.)
  • April 28, 7 pm ET: Live chat with author Lily King: Time for our Book Club discussion of Writers & Lovers with author Lily King! This is an MMD Book Club event. (Events are available as replays for members who cannot attend live.)

Have a great weekend!

    I am reading Brit Bennett’s “The Vanishing Half” right now and it’s amazing, heading over now to read the article!

    Monty Don is the best! I haven’t watched Gardener’s World yet, but Prime has another show of his called My Dream Farm, where he consults with new farmers (city mice who have moved, mostly) on whether/how their farm plans are feasible. It’s a delight.

      I also haven’t watched gardeners world, but Netflix had a show he hosts called ‘Big Dreams, Small Spaces’ where he helps people build their perfect small gardens and it is lovely (and inspired is to do more on our own years over the last 3 years)
