We’re definitely enjoying the spring weather over here, planting in our gardens, exploring nurseries for more plant babies, and making the most of our fireplaces on the last cool, gray, rainy days of the season. This weekend is bringing us new brunch spots, dinners on the grill, and a lot of celebrating Independent Bookstore Day at some of our favorite local haunts. What are you up to this weekend?

AROUND THE WEB

Thrilled to see Powers win the Pulitzer Prize for The Overstory; we can’t wait to read this book!

Planning to celebrate indie bookstore day? This article is the cutest, and is a bookstore crawl not the BEST idea? Count us in!

This is a wonderful article by an author about why you should support your local indie bookstores (and here’s our take, too!)

Are you guys ready for the Battle of Winterfell? I will be definitely be blasting one of these playlists Sunday afternoon to set the mood.

Did you see us featured over on Bustle yesterday? Honored to be included with so many other talented accounts talking about what we love about Bookstagram and how we take beautiful book photos.

Lou’s account is what light, colorful, literary lifestyle dreams are made of, and we can’t get enough.

We want to just go live inside Claudia’s photos, enough said.

WHAT WE’RE READING

Michaela - I have been so focused on house projects this week that I’ve barely even touched a book. I did manage to start The Hate U Give for our IRL book club though!

Rikki - I’m putting all other books aside since my son wants to buddy read 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, and I want to give it my undivided attention.
