It’s another glorious October weekend here in the PNW. We are taking advantage of our remaining few weeks of mild weather and spending as much time outside as possible this weekend with our families before the rains return. This is our absolute favorite time of year, and we are just soaking it up. What are you guys up to this weekend?

Around the Web

Why simply buying books isn’t enough to keep bookstores alive. This was really thought provoking, and a good peek behind the curtain at the realities of owning and operating a bookstore, what we value in our communities, and what you can do to make a difference.

Speaking of indie bookstores….

Visiting Atlanta any time soon? Or want some armchair travel? Here’s a how to spend a literary long weekend in the city! What would this look like in your hometown?

Did you see J. K. Rowling’s explanation of Quidditch scoring? So good.

Our friend Morgan has a great list of spooky reads if you’re trying to sneak one in before the month ends!

We’ll also be revisiting our fall book + cocktail pairings this weekend when we mix ourselves a drink. Are any of them to your taste?


The loveliest moody vibes I’ve seen yet, plus all the classics

Jamie has great taste in new contemporary titles, a cute kitty, and great light all the time

I don’t even know what to say about Sara, except that I’m extremely jealous. See for yourself!

What We're Reading

Michaela - I’m still making good progress with War and Peace, but I had to put it on the back burner this weekend in order to quickly finish my book club book, Warbreaker! I’m loving both, so no complaints here.

Rikki - I am in a great place with my current reads right now and I love it. As I Lay Dying is my chapter a night read and I’m enjoying every bit of Faulkner’s brilliant prose. I’m also reading and loving Where the Crawdads Sing and There There.
