Links I love

What are you up to this weekend? We have some fun stuff planned, including attending opening night for a school theater production, cheering on our favorite runners at a track meet, and welcoming our college kid home from school for a few days. I hope you have something to look forward to, and that this collection of interesting reads and favorite things helps ease you into that weekend frame of mind.

My favorite finds from around the web:

  • The Nocturnals. I might be an introvert but I’m not nocturnal so reading this made me feel like an anthropologist.

Don’t miss these posts:

Upcoming Events:

  • Whether you’re a seasoned lover or poetry, or approaching the form for the first time, we’ll explore poetry together in Modern Mrs Darcy Book Club with special guest Amena Brown—poet, author, and comedic storyteller—sharing inspiration without the intimidation.
  • May 19: Summer Reading Guide Unboxing: This is the best book party on the interwebs! In a ninety-minute live session, I reveal every title in the Summer Reading Guide, and tell readers why I chose it. This event is for our Modern Mrs Darcy Book Club members and What Should I Read Next Patreon community members. Members get the guide in their inboxes just after the Unboxing—which means they get it four days early. They also get an expanded guide with exclusive content, including additional titles, extra book lists, and more fun bonus content.
  • May 23: 2022 MMD Summer Reading Guide releases! Details here.

Have a great weekend!

    Any recommendations for preorders? B&N has a 25% discount on all preorders through today so I’m looking at upcoming releases.

    The Bloomburg article was fantastic! Thank you!
    My husband and I spent hundreds of evenings (and a lot of our tiny college student budgets) during our dating years together in the Schulers Bookstores around Michigan State University. They hold a very fond place in my memory.

    My husband hates onions or even the essence of onion. Do you think the turkey sausage lasagna would be OK to make without the onion?

    The Bloomberg article about bookstores is right on point. My friends and I spent hours at our local Borders in the late 90s and early 00s, looking at books, perusing the CDs, and drinking mochas. Such nostalgia! I live in Canada now and Indigo is the big national chain here and it’s great. In addition to, in my opinion, very well curated book displays, including ones featuring female authors, minority voices, and Canadian lit, they also have great home decor, kitchen paraphernalia, and baby stuff. Some may say that stuff doesn’t belong in a bookstore—but for me, it’s an added bonus and I almost always leave with something to read and something to brighten my home. But, I love supporting my local indies too (there’s one literally 800 ft from my home), so I like to patron both equally.

    Great links, loved the exploration of lasagna! I will definitely be trying the Ina recipe. And Bomb Shelter is now very high on my TBR. Thanks!
