Link Love

My boxes are mostly unpacked (finally!), though I’m still trying to set up a place to record new Booktube videos. It may not be perfect yet, but I wouldn’t trade my cozy living room for the world (because plaid and candles for days! Total no brainer.)

While I finish getting settled in, here’s some reading for the week…

♥ The internet was all in a tizzy a few weeks ago about this couple that tried to emulate a Victorian lifestyle in 2015. Y’know, by blogging about their historically accurate lifestyle. The internet retaliated with the important distinction between appreciation and ignorance, and what it means to understand history with pieces like Vox’s Victorians.

What fun links have you found lately?

    I am loving the articles from Zen Habits! Gonna have to keep up with that site…single tasking – SO much yes. I am absolutely embracing that lately as well. Glad to hear your settling in from your move – candles and plaid sounds like a winning combo to me!

    • It’s one of my favorite sites, especially for mindful, now-kind of stuff 🙂

  • The article about book covers is really interesting! Also, I’m happy that you love your new place and I can’t wait to start watching your BookTube videos with your new backdrop once you’re all set up!

  • Mallory Ortberg nails it again. And yay for a literary education! My degree in literature taught me about history, psychology, rhetoric… and how to write a killer cover letter.

    • I know! So many useful things! I scoff at those who scoff at literature degrees.
