This is my current favorite podcast. The hardest class I took in grad school was History and Structure of the English Language, but I loved it. This podcast goes back just as far, to the Indo-European languages and the Eurasian steppe. It has given me an insufferable case of the hey-did-you-knows. Plus I‘m in love with Kevin Stroud‘s voice.

I crocheted snow out of fuzzy baby blanket yarn, and it made the perfect backdrop for this book.

I wove in and out of a few books before settling on one, but now I‘m 1/3 of the way into #24in48 book two. I‘m finding it a little shallow while also feeling validated in many, many pop culture-related frustrations.

I feel bereft (it‘s over?) but I‘m satisfied.

My first #24in48 book. Too busy this weekend to make it anywhere close...and unsure if I‘m even officially signed up...

I spent all day on the water yesterday and didn‘t get a sunburn. This is unusual, even with the SPF 50 I slather on every hour.

The emotionally honest memoir and the true-crime aspect both kept me fascinated. Some passages rang so true for me and my own life experiences that I had to put it down for long stretches. So let's say give it the same number of stars as there have been creepy, potentially or actually dangerous men in your life that you've known about, and then try not to keep yourself awake wondering about the imaginary number of them you never even noticed.

Sometimes I do a little mental tune-up with a self-help book. So far, this one is full of observations that are pretty obvious to a person who is already (hyper) self-aware.

I get that the paper is different, but this still bends my brain. Book two is huge-r and has fewer pages!

LLColbeck I design books for a living and it baffles authors how a change in font can snowball into a cover redesign to accommodate a new spine width. Same goes for changing paper color from white to creme! 2y

This is why I designate a stack of books to read at the lake. It's way worse in person and smells more like lake than book at this point.
