Hi Litsy? Sorry about my unintended hiatus! But today is a snow day in DC, I‘m drinking an almond milk cappuccino, and enjoying Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, which features one of the most unusual protagonists I‘ve encountered in a long time. #amreading #snowdayread

"The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go." Happy birthday to the doctor who always prescribed reading and adventure. #drseuss

The Secret History | Donna Tartt

Bonded with a coworker over books (💜‼️) so we decided to start swapping them. This is the first one she's lent me, and it's been great bed-time reading so far.

Short story books make the best bed-time reading since they're entertaining and fulfilling in short bursts. This one is particularly well-written and enjoyable, funny punctuated by moments of sadness, anger, chagrin, love. Highly recommend.

Had a lazy Saturday morning in bed with this book. Exactly what the doctor ordered after a crazy week. Easy and fun, like listening to a friend's stories over brunch.

Erik Larson is often my author of choice when flying. I think it's because his books are engrossing and accessible no matter how many times my reading gets interrupted.

I loved this book so much it deserved a second post. I can't say enough good things about it. It's an important story well told, and simply put, it's one memoir that is an absolutely necessary read.

I can't overstate how important this book is. It will shake you up and wring you out, and if you're not yet interested in criminal justice reform, you will be.

I always bring one soft cover book with me while traveling, as well as my ereader apps (on my iPad). So glad I chose this one—it's so good that I don't even mind that my flight to SFO is delayed. #moretimetoread

bookendmylife One of my favourite books ❤️ 4y

Excited about my World Book Day purchase, and went to the reading, to boot. Rebecca Traister is so bright, sharp, funny, and approachable. Ready to read this cross-cultural (and historical) book about how unmarried women have and will shape America.

rjpatt Ooh, this is on my list! 4y

I find books of essays or short stories make great nighttime reading. They're thoroughly engaging but their organization means that you can read small doses and still feel satisfied, and you come to stopping points easily. Excited for this one.

We Should All Be Feminists | Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

In honor of women's history month, this is a must read. "Feminism is, of course, part of human rights in general–but to choose to use the expression human rights is to deny the specific and particular problem of gender."

"I told you last night that I might be gone sometime, and you said, Where, and I said, To be with the good Lord, and you said, Why, and I said, Because I'm old, and you said, I don't think you're old." Beautiful start to a beautiful book.

Lauren Groff's prose in Fates and Furies is gorgeous and I love the dialogue. Highlighted so much on my Nook. This one has been in my head since reading it last weekend.

Remarkable telling of a, by many standards, unremarkable life. The prose is exceptional–Williams's writing is precise and beautiful. The characters are fascinating, the plot excellent. A must-read that will leave a deep impact on you.

ladyprofessor The fates are conspiring for me to read this book. 4y
