I ordered my Hobonichi! At 10:03 pm. I spent something like $120 at the store, which is pretty typical for me. I don’t think I can think of anything that could bring me as much joy (or functionality!) as that box for $120.
Admittedly I didn’t really need a new cover, but I wanted one. (Randomly, I have been using a plain black leather cover that I purchased in 2016 this year and it feels very professional but I’m getting bored of it). I have very strong associations of certain years with certain covers, and 2020 is a big year!
I am currently reading Daring Greatly (my first Brené Brown) and finishing up Gravity is the Thing (by Jaclyn Moriarty, who is Liane’s sister!). I feel ready to transition into fall reading. Maybe some slightly more serious books; maybe some more non-fiction (I tend to do non-fic in the AM and fiction the rest of the time).
I did not complete my entire Summer Reading List but I came close!
My favorites on this list:
The Mother-In-Law by Sally Hepworth – I literally could NOT stop reading this.
Digital Minimalism by Cal Newport (though it’s not perfect, I agree Ana!)
Save Me The Plums by Ruth Reichl
Ayesha At Last by Uzma Jalaluddin
I liked many of the others too, but those are the ones that stand out in my mind when I look back at the list.
I still want to read both The River and The Island of Sea Women so they make make it onto a fall list 🙂
Also, the hurricane is stalled out but probably won’t hit us. And this has been the longest-feeling call week of my life. (It’s over in the morning!)
Thinking of those in the islands (Bahamas especially – they are going to need relief help) and higher up the FL coast and hoping this thing just goes away soon!
