When you can’t leave the house with fewer than three books because it’s hard to tell what kind of mood you’ll be in twenty minutes later in carpool line. #bookwormproblems (Follow me on instagram @annebogel.)

On the blog: 

One year ago: Three little words to overcome perfectionism. “I don’t talk about success or failure much anymore, not in my day-to-day life. Instead, I’ve learned to say let’s experiment. It’s far less scary.”

Two years ago: Being the boss lady. “I seek harmony, dread controversy, and hate telling people what to do. In short, I shouldn’t be anybody’s boss. But I’m in a position where I need to be.”

Three years ago: Crazy talk. “When we were on our way to the beach earlier this month, 4 hours into a long, boring drive, Will said, “Are you in the mood for some crazy talk?”  My answer: “YES. Always.”

Have a great weekend!

    Love, love, love the regency beach body link. Last year, my husband and I went to Hawaii for our anniversary. We went to the beach every morning and I wore my big floppy hat, long sleeve swim rasher shirt, sarong and SPF 80. I sat and read while my husband took to the waters. I think I came home paler than when I went, but oh my, the food on Maui is delicious!!! My husband usually comments that Keira Knightly is not really a regency appropriate actress for the role of Elizabeth Bennett.

    Anne, What is the title of the book in your bag that I can only read part of the title? I see the words atom, weight and love. It looks interesting….totally judging a book by its cover? Full title? Author? Thanks!

      I wholeheartedly agree. I think it will be hard, if not impossible, to top Meagan Follows as Anne (of Green Gables), not to mention the rest of the cast.
      As Anne (Bogel) commented, Miss Shirley doesn’t need to be “edgier”.

  3. Anne says:

    I am holding my breath on the new Anne series. I saw the word edgier being used to describe it, and Anne doesn’t need to be edgier. I could be pleasantly surprised, but I’m not getting my hopes up.

    I also loved that article from Caroline on PEI. Swoon.

    hoping to hear what you think about The Atomic Weight of Love. I got an ARC a while back, but never got around to it.
