Links I love

It’s been a hard week, friends. We released the Summer Reading Guide (yay!) while I was a little bit sick. Now we’re celebrating the end of my kids’ school years (what a privilege that is) and we’re mourning with those who mourn. This week we’ve laughed and coughed and cried and called our representatives, and taught our kids how to do the same.

Almost every Friday, we round up an assortment of interesting reads and favorite things to help ease you into a weekend frame of mind. I hope this collection offers some of what you may find yourself needing right now.

My favorite finds from around the web:

  • No Parent Should Have to Live Like This. “There is no other country in the world where this happens. And the fact that it does happen, and happens with such frequency, is reflective of a choice that has been made. But just because a choice has been made doesn’t mean that different choices aren’t possible.”
  • How Wordle brought us back together. “It’s hard to converse in a straightforward way sometimes — but in their own small way, these games can make talking to each other easier.”

Upcoming Events:

  • June 9: Kickstart Your Reading Life (with genre recs): We’ll explore key characteristics of the memoir and historical fiction, plus offer new and old representative recommendations from each. This is a Modern Mrs Darcy Book Club event.
  • June 22: Bookworm Problems: In this Quick-Fix Conversation session, we’re talking with real readers about the problems that plague their reading lives (and might be plaguing you, too!) and offer on-the-spot tips and troubleshooting. This is a Modern Mrs Darcy Book Club event.

Have a great weekend!
