It’s Friday! So I thought I’d share another Bookly Bulletin (I know, finally!) full of reading- and book-related tidbits for you to enjoy over the long (and delicious) holiday. New here? Take a look at the other Bookly Bulletins.
And without further ado…
If you’re like me and buy books faster than you can read them, then you probably want to know just how long it will take you to read all those unread books on your shelf. Thanks to another gem from Read It Forward, the TBR (“to be read”) calculator does just that!
Memoir is one of my favorite genres. One of the masters, Mary Karr, has a new book out called The Art of Memoir. My dad – a fellow book lover and book hoarder – sent me The New York Times’ review and while it’s not the most favorable, it’s a worth a read. (And I still might add it to my “to-be-read” list.)
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, author of The Bookly Club’s July pick, We Should All Be Feminists, has a TEDTalk that every single one of us should watch.
I’m guessing you’re probably like us and always have your nose in a book. Now there’s finally proof for what we’ve known all along: all that reading is good for your health.
Books are one of my favorite presents, both to give and receive. And if your BFF is a book lover like ours are, this list will come in handy for the upcoming holidays.
One book that’s definitely on my holiday wish list? Aziz Ansari’s Modern Romance. (Anyone watched “Master of None” yet?)
I know what I’m thankful for this Turkey Day: friends, family, and – of course, books. What are you thankful for this year?
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving! And, as always, thanks for reading.
