Cheers to the Weekend 1.25.19


It’s the last week of January, and we are grateful to be looking ahead towards spring! January is the hardest month for us both, because the weather tends to be pretty cold and wet, and life usually slows way down. Excited for a February full of birthdays, big changes, warmer temperatures, and later sunsets. This weekend we’re looking forward to our usually breakfast date, some quality caffeine, and book talk. What are you guys up to?

Interested in starting a book club? Need help restructuring the one you already run? Just curious about what it’s like to be a book club organizer? Check out this interview.

Corporate censorship is something I’ve though a lot about (and a big reason I started @theindiebiblio to support indie presses) and this article does a great job examining it’s threat to publishing.

2019 is bringing us some exciting debut novels! We’ve heard some great buzz already about a couple on the list!


Kat’s feed is honestly breathtaking, striking the perfect balance between simple and artistic, and plus she has flawless taste in books.
