Weekly Wrap-Up

I think books are like people, in the sense that they'll turn up in your life when you most need them.—Emma Thompson


Emma Thompson. One of my favorite imaginary BFFs. Audible has just released a reading by her of Henry James' The Turn of the Screw and I can't download it fast enough. Who knows, maybe the lovely Ms. Thompson can even convince Tracy to give listening a try.

We're swooning over this online book/shop. We were sold the minute we saw one of our all-time favorite reading quotes in print.  Our books are begging to be slipped into this for safe keeping. All we have to say about this is "Hear, hear!"

If you love food and flowers (who doesn't) you'll love this blog. It will make you want to move to a little cabin in the Northern California woods. Cheer up your Insta feed by following her here. And brighten your recipe bookshelf with her delightful cookbook. (She's got one for kiddos too.) I have no idea how practical or good her recipes are, I tend to buy cookbooks for the eye candy and the eternal hope that someday I'll turn into a domestic goddess.

Want to read 54 books a year? According to Time, you'll need to read an hour a day. For some of us, that may feel like a pipe dream right now. In case you missed it, check out our post on finding time to read when there's no time to read.
