I am a voracious reader and every week I come across either a book, online piece or website I want to share with others. I’ve decided to curate these gems and highlight them on Friday. I hope you find these faves as insightful as I do.
- If you’re having trouble completing a big project or procrastinating on an important task, consider this advice by Mike Birbiglia – “6 Tips for Making It Small in Hollywood. Or Anywhere.” Key point – “Failure is essential. There’s no substitute for it. It’s not just encouraged but required.”
- Good news for bookstores – “print books remain much more popular than books in digital formats.” The Pew Research Center offers its latest on America’s book reading habits.
- Melissa Gould’s piece in the LA Times offers a new take on love – “Can one person have two soul mates? I hope so.”
- “Writing is saying to no one and to everyone the things it is not possible to say to someone.” I adore Rebecca Solnit’s work and loved this piece, “Why Is Rebecca Solnit Hopeful?” in Lion’s Roar. h/t my friend, Kristen Ploetz.
