It’s our last lazy week before our routine picks back up, so we’ve been enjoying every minute of it.
WHAT’S HAPPENING AT HOME/SCHOOL/LIFE
in the magazine: The winter issue is out next week! I am particularly excited about our Gigantic Homeschool Book List, which was incredibly fun to put together.
on the blog: How to start a family book club
on instagram: The hat I keep knitting over and over again (When I wrote this post, Mary Oliver was alive; when it actually posted, she was not. I feel a little weird about that, especially since the reference I made is such a casual one.)
on patreon: A new episode of the Podcast with Suzanne and Amy! (It will be up everywhere next week)
LINKS I LIKED
I, too, started my publishing life in the days when magazines were arbiters of taste, so this mini memoir by a former newspaper film critic (who hated The English Patient) really resonated with me.
I am now obsessed with finding an existential therapist.
Even though I will probably never actually quit email, I love the idea of quitting email so much.
Sometimes the best dinners are the ones you don’t see on Instagram.
THINGS I DIDN’T KNOW BUT NOW I DO
There is an official point where I will stop reading J.K. Rowling’s further notes on the wizarding world she created, and this is it.
City traffic was a little crazy even before there were cars.
Doodling is the best way to take notes.
BOOKS ADDED TO MY TBR LIST THIS WEEK
Mary Ventura and the Ninth Kingdom (I’m so skeptical, but I have to)
A Tale for the Time Being (because Suzanne recommends it)
