This Audible original is not in the database but I found it fascinating! A three hour popular science exploration of real science and how it relates to the science fiction we most love. Worth the quick three hour listen!

Just starting my new work book. I like to have a “work book” going at all times. Reading nonfiction for 15 minutes is part of my morning routine. As a copywriter, glad to finally be getting to this classic.

I‘m listening to this one in hopes of applying some of the concepts to my creative work. I am constantly distracted in the workplace and don‘t make blocks for “deep work” … yet. Convince me Newport.

Listening on audio, and I like the narrator!

I was fascinated by this examination of Netflix structure and work culture. Working at a startup, I received this book when I started there. So glad I finally got it finished. Favorite actionable item: the four step framework for giving constructive feedback and how to receive it.

I liked this even though I was surprised it was more erotica than romance in my opinion, which I didn‘t realize when I started. New experience! Haha

Starting this one for the #readathon. A gift from my mom for my birthday last month. I‘ve been reading a lot of romance and sci fi so excited to dive back into historical fiction with this novel!

annahenke @IuliaC nice!! Let me know what you think - I‘m definitely liking it so far! 4mo
IuliaC @annahenke I've read about two thirds this week and I am really enjoying it! It started a bit slow but after a few chapters I felt absorbed by the story and now I just can't put it down! 4mo

Finally starting this series. I tried the audiobook once but didn‘t like the narrator so going with ebook. I was turned on to this series by the Fated Mates podcast, which I‘ve avidly listened to for years. Think I‘ll finally read this and go back to the episodes that cover it! #romance #swoonathon

Linear These are my guilty pleasure. The story through them all is neat. And each couple have their own kinks and issues. I named my cat after one of the characters lol 5mo

Long one of my favorite authors, I really enjoyed the latest Scottish historical fiction novel from Susanna Kearsley. Unlike many of her other books, this was more mystery than romance. But I like it just as much!

If you‘re a Diana Gabaldon fan or a historical fiction lover but you want something a little more fast paced, check this out!

I‘ve been revisiting this series on Saturdays and read this one today - I still enjoyed it but this is mostly set in “Indian Country” and much of it is of it‘s time and a bit troubling except for Pa‘s perspective.

Wow. I am just exploring essays and I was blown away by this collection from Alexander Chee. I was challenged as a writer to think more deeply. I was moved as a human on rights issues. It was also a very fitting book to read at the twentieth anniversary of 9/11. This was quite by accident. But I was in tears at the last essay i was so touched. Highly recommended.

On the cusp of autumn, I felt a nostalgic longing for a return to the Big Woods. Yesterday was chilly and rainy, so I made myself a cup of tea and cozied up in my quilt and read this one aloud while my fall candles burned.

Some children‘s books seem so trivial and silly when you revisit them, but this classic is so fully of light and substance. Like a warm hug and a loving family.

Adore it still.
