Is it just me or does this museum exhibit sound like the title of a Miranda July book? (Side note: it makes me so happy that there‘s a place like Litsy where someone might get this reference)

LauraBrook I thought it was a new book cover of hers for a hot second! 13mo
BarbaraBB Even the visual looks like July‘s cover! 13mo
mauveandrosysky Also she has that movie “Me and You and Everyone We Know” (which is great) 13mo

Kids are away for the week, which means instead of rushing them to school (put your shoes on!) I get to luxuriate in a few lazy, book-filled mornings.

saresmoore It‘s always the shoes. Then they can‘t find the shoes. Then they put on sandals when it‘s 30 degrees. Then they forgot their lunchbox inside. It‘s like some absurdist retelling of “If You Give a Mouse a Cookie” played out in real time, every morning. 1y
saresmoore So, what I‘m saying is, enjoy! You‘ve earned this! 1y
Mdargusch Enjoy! 1y
Eamann @saresmoore we are clearly living parallel lives - I threw their sandals down into the basement last week! 1y

My current real-life TBR stack, sorted by how long I have until the library sends a SWAT team through my window to reclaim it (I owe them $8 which is the library equivalent of like $10,000)

Foxyfictionista That's shameful. I do it all the time and my mom was a librarian before she retired. I like to think that racking up fines is my way of rebelling. 😂 1y

I've been on a big nonfiction kick lately. I have such a love/hate relationship with the genre - some of them you finish and think 'this whole thing could have fit on an index card.' I'm liking this one only because he asks every interviewee to recommend books - when the same book shows up 3 times or more it's a good sign that it's worth reading.

Suet624 Oooh. Sounds good. 1y
jamespoole I feel exactly the same way about Tribe of Mentors! Were there any key takeaways that stood out to you? Interested to hear other people's thoughts :) 1y
Eamann @jamespoole my biggest takeaway is that everyone seems to be meditating except for me. And that I have ten new books on my stack that people have recommended 14mo

In daily life I am always on the lookout for good names to use in a book. If a name can also double as a sentence, it makes the list!
