My favorite finds from around the web:

Things worth doing badly. “Laughter, enjoying a meal, walking at dawn—such things cannot be left to the expert laughers, the professional diners, and licensed walkers.”

• Author Judy Blume is blooming with Florida book store enterprise. “The New Jersey-born author has opened a full-service book store in Key West—and is loving it!”

Theta time: why taking time for downtime will make you smarter. “Not only is multi-tasking harmful and inefficient, but so is working all the damn time. Our brains are wired to perform best when we take a breather.”

The one thing about your spouse’s personality that really affects your career.

Coming soon:

The fifth annual Summer Reading Guide is coming next week. I’ve been posting sneak peaks over on instagram (follow me @annebogel). Although don’t rush out and buy anything just yet: the one pictured above didn’t make the cut (although there’s certainly plenty there to discuss with your book club).

Can’t wait? View last year’s guide here.

On the blog: 

One year ago: What my mother taught me. “From the big picture stuff to the practical minutiae, her influence is everywhere.”

Two years ago: Parenting the good kids and the odd ones out. “The good kids tend to struggle in the middle. These are the kids who sail through adolescence drama-free, only to have a massive breakdown in their early thirties. (I was a good kid.)”

Three years ago: This summer I’m saying YES. “I really like home, and so does the rest of my family. I wouldn’t trade that for the world. But it gives me lots of good reasons to say no.”

Four years ago: 8 things you need to know before you buy a swimsuit online.

Five years ago: The best book you’ve never heard of on … fertility?!?

Have a great weekend!
