My favorite finds from around the web:
• Do men even know who Marie Kondo is? “After buying Kondo’s book, I squandered entire minutes of my one and only life staring at a bottle of dishwasher liquid pondering whether or not it “sparked joy”.”
• Gratitude physically changes your brain, new study says. “Something as simple as writing down three things you’re grateful for every day for 21 days in a row significantly increases your level of optimism, and it holds for the next six months. The research is amazing.”
• Men have book clubs, too. “We are not allowed to suggest books that our mothers have suggested. We had an accident one time. We read ‘Water for Elephants.’ It was a huge mistake.”
On the podcast:
Yesterday I released a special bonus episode for the What Should I Read Next? podcast. My special guest was my 8 year old daughter Lucy. The format was the same as the regular Tuesday episodes: Lucy told me three books she loves, one book she hates, and what she’s reading now, and I gave her three personalized recommendations for what she should read next.
On the blog:
