Links I love

I hope this Saturday delivery finds you well. We post our lovely links almost every Friday; this week’s exception is due to the 15th falling on a Friday, since Quick Lit happens on the 15th of the month. (Go check it out and share what you’ve been reading lately?)

I assembled this collection before my family received hard news yesterday; please know the date for the Fall Book Preview may change. Should that become necessary, we will give you plenty of notice.

Join us for Fall Book Preview!

The Fall Book Preview is almost here, and I’m so excited about the slightly different spin I’m putting on it for 2021. Some things will stay exactly the same: on October 21, I’ll share a curated list of the season’s most anticipated new titles, plus the info you need to decide which books are likely the best use of your precious reading time.

This exclusive event is for for Modern Mrs Darcy Book Club members and What Should I Read Next Patreon “Book Lover” supporters. Those communities will receive a printable that lists every title included in our preview.

My favorite finds from around the web:

  • Great shirt, great price. The colors for this versatile button-down are lovely.
  • My 16-year-old and I are just home from the first of several college visit road trips; she considers these chocolate bars a road trip essential and I am grateful.

Don’t miss these posts:

Upcoming Events:

  • October 26: Live chat with Bezi Yohannes: Time for our Modern Mrs Darcy Book Club discussion of Parable of the Sower with Bezi Yohannes! Bezi is an expert on Black fantasy and Afrofuturism, and she’ll be sharing more about these distinct genres with us to enhance our understanding of this month’s selection. (Events are available as replays for members who cannot attend live.)

    I’m so sad for your sudden, deep loss, Anne … and am praying for your family right now. Please give yourself the grace and space to fully grieve … books and all other things will wait.

    My sympathies to you, your husband, and family on the sudden death of your father-in-law. May God’s love give you comfort.

    Dying to know about the chocolate bars… The link is not right, I think? Looking forward to a correction and chocolate in my future!!!

    I am here for older woman on TV and movies and books too! It is great that older actresses are starting their own production companies creating content about mature woman and creating good meaty roles for mature actresses.

    Great link regarding Native writers, so good ideas for my bookclub.

    My sympathies to you and your family.

  5. Ruthie says:

    Goodness, the other comments alerted me to the fact that I had misinterpreted the family news to be that of your postponed book launch. I’m so sorry about your FiL, Anne. Such a hard blow, especially coming out of the blue as it sounds to have done. Adding my thoughts to those of many other of your followers, and hoping your family will derive comfort from the many happy memories you must have of your FiL as you come to terms with this sad turn of events. Best,

    I was in Brooklyn this past weekend, saw one of the haikus, and wondered what it was there for! Such a lovely idea.
    My deepest condolences on the loss of your father-in-law, Anne.

  7. Susan says:

    Sincere condolences on the loss of your father-in-law. May you find comfort in fond memories and the love and support of family and friends.

    I read and analyzed the article on book shortages, and I agree that the way to remedy labor shortages is to increase immigration. My son, who works for Amazon, also noted that a large number of recent arrivals work at his warehouse, and the are a very hardworking,stable part of their workforce. Just one woman’s opinion.

  9. Lia says:

    Anne, so sorry about your FiL. Prayers for your family. I’m beginning college trips with my daughter too – it’s a trip!

    So excited for the chocolate link! I searched Amazon not two weeks ago for that very same bar and couldn’t find it. That’s my son’s Christmas stocking filled!
