What’s on your horizon this weekend? I feel like we’re getting started early here because it’s our first snow day. Everything is cancelled, and I imagine hot chocolate and daytime movies and puzzling will be happening soon.

I hope you have a lovely weekend, wherever you are.

My favorite finds from around the web:

My book Don’t Overthink It is on sale across all ebook platforms for $.99, and for $.79 on Kindle. Get it while it’s hot!

Inside a hollow library book, a secret library. What a treasure!

‘I Always Think of Poetry as Home for Me’. Clint Smith interviewed Amanda Gorman and their conversation is everything I hoped it would be.

Top 25 News Photos of 2021. I can’t believe this all happened in one year. (Some of these images may be difficult to look at—be gentle with yourselves.)

My skin loves this dry body oil for winter. (The whole product line is fantastic.)

The Promises Martha Stewart Made—and Why We Wanted to Believe Them. Nobody wrote like Joan Didion. Such a loss.

Never Donate These Books to Little Free Libraries (or Anywhere Else). Duly noted.

Love In The Shape Of Cut Fruit. “Cut fruit is a gift. Life is filled with bitter and hard things. When you extract pits, piths, and peels, fruit becomes an accessible and reliable source of pure sweetness, only softness.”

Rick Steves on the Return of Travel and Why It Matters. “I got used to the security after 9/11, and I’m getting used to Covid standards now. But I do think that, come next year, we’ll be back to traveling again — and I hope that we’ll all be better for it.”

This cheerful puzzle was fun for the whole family (and WAY EASIER than the last few we’ve done!).

Jami Attenberg: ‘Rejection gave me a fresh start, a new year’. “I treasure my friendships and the endless pile of notebooks I keep filling, marvelling occasionally at how there are always, somehow, more words in the world. There is always a fresh start when I open a new notebook. It is always 1 January when I turn to the first page.”
