We are suddenly charging toward August somehow, and scrambling to fit in more summer activities before the warm weather fades to the crisper days of autumn. This weekend will be spent with our families getting to those summer plans, puttering in our gardens, and reading, of course! What are you guys up to this weekend?
AROUND THE WEB
A day in the life of an indie publisher we love!
We couldn't agree more about the importance of independent bookstores.
We can never have enough book + cocktail pairings, and some of these look really cool, plus it's so fun that this is a regular series at this bar!
What you can learn about yourself by tracking your reading.
Have you checked our our new insta dedicated to indie and small press?
Tasha's account is reading + lifestyle vibes that feel authentic and are super pretty!
We love Annaciara's bright, happy account. It looks like a book goes everywhere with her, plus she is full of snark and hilarity in her stories.
Kristine is also nailing that literary lifestyle in the best way.
WHAT WE'RE READING
Michaela - I read up a storm this week, honestly! I'm heading into this weekend hoping to polish off the last bit of Bitter Orange and The Hour of Daydreams, both of which are gorgeous and fascinating in very different ways.
Rikki - I am still jovially reading through Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, and look forward to watching the movie soon. I forgot I had put The Power of Habit on hold at the library some time ago and started it promptly when it came in. I really love this book, and sneak in a moment to read it every single chance I get!
