My favorite finds from around the web:
• Smart everyday cooking tips from celebrity chefs. Practical, actionable tips you can start using immediately.
• Marie Kondo and the cult of tidying up. “Ms. Kondo’s book has captured the imaginations of readers around the world at a moment when many people seem to have reached a tipping point of clutter in their lives.”
• The most well-read cities in America, at least according to Amazon’s sales data.
What I’m reading this week:
Books about Paris, by sheer coincidence. I read the first Madame Chic book on the plane last week, and just picked up this next book in the series from the library. (There’s a third book slated for October publication.)
Most popular on the blog:
My summer uniform. I’m obsessed with uniform dressing but I haven’t taken the plunge—till now.
The satisficer’s guide to NYC. I’m surprised but delighted that I could introduce so many of you to the word “satisficer.”
7 favorite books in translation to read this year. “Why read books in translation? My friend put it well when she quipped, “I’m stuck in my head, I read to escape my own head, and my head happens to be an American head.”
Have a great weekend!
