Links I love

What are you up to this weekend? I’m unplugging for a bit, heading outdoors with my family, and spending time with friends. I hope you have something to look forward to this weekend, and that you find pockets of relaxation, restoration, and joy.

I hope this collection of interesting reads and favorite things helps ease you into that weekend state of mind.

My favorite finds from around the web:

  • In Defense of the Literary Happy Ever After. “There are as many variations of the HEA story as there are definitions for their fundamental descriptors: happyever, and after. The meaning is dependent on the interpretation and what we each want to believe those words signify.”

Don’t miss these posts:

  • Let’s reinvent the romantic comedy. If you love a book that guarantees a happy ending, gives you the funny with the sad, has emotional depth, and makes the reading experience fun, this list might be exactly what your TBR needs.

Upcoming Events:

  • June 9: Kickstart Your Reading Life: We’ll share crowd-pleasing picks from these popular genres: memoir and historical fiction. This is a Modern Mrs Darcy Book Club event.
  • June 22: Bookworm Problems: In this Quick-Fix Conversation session, we talk with three readers that represent common problems in the reading life and troubleshoot what plagues them (and might be plaguing you too!). This is a Modern Mrs Darcy Book Club event.

You can find more upcoming events here.

Have a great weekend!

    Yesterday I started a new audiobook of Joshua Greene’s biography of Siggi Wilzig, “Unstoppable,” and I’ve just bought the new Helen Rappaport book, “After the Romanovs.”

  2. Hello Everyone,
    I can not help but share my favorite thing this week! I just purchased an acrylic necklace of a Jane Austen Bookshelf from Tatty Devine a UK based store that has begun to ship to the US. They have tons of fun Jane Austen jewelry! I am wearing mine today and it is making me smile.
    P.S. I have no affiliation with Tatty Devine.

    I looked into the Short Edition machines for my library, but the cost is very high. I saw that Richland County Public Library in SC had them. They seem like a really cool thing to have.
