Peyton Manning. I love him but let there be no dispute: Tracy is his hands down, numero uno, ain't-no-one-lovin-him-more fan. She'll be cheering him on from the stands tomorrow and if you know Tray, you know her voice carries—which means her man will know she's there and perform accordingly. Go Broncos!

Birthday books. Hooray for friends who love books! Here's a look at what's been added to my stack: Girl at War, People of the Book, The Japanese Lover, The Martian, and The Art of Hearing Heartbeats. If anyone needs me, I'll be reading.

You can be sure whenever I bring myself to put one of these books down, my page will be marked with this beauty from a dear friend.

Speaking of books and lovelies, another dear friend gave me this print from one of my favorite children's books illustrators, Emily Winfield Martin. Lucky, lucky me!

And look for more inspired posts as I've now got this to jot down any ideas that come my way. A lovely gift from an even lovelier friend.

Book recommendations. A long-time friend I don't see nearly enough of told me about a YA book she loves: Daddy-Long-Legs. I've ordered one up!

Book Gifting. Which is why we updated our Gift Guide to help you find the perfect book for just about any occasion. Bonus: when giving a book, include one of these. There is a space on the back for you to write your favorite quote! My friend Jill went all the way to Vienna to find them, but thankfully she's shared a way we can order one without having to leave the house. Although, I'd still rather go to Vienna.


Tracy's review of Crenshaw.

My review of When Breath Becomes Air. Really.

A real, honest to goodness, bona fide Throw Back Thursday.
