Love the idea of using a belt to strap in a set of books or magazines. Brilliant. ~LP

"1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die" | Listology

Well, looks like I better get cracking! Out of this list I’ve read… about 28ish. Hah! Though, what I want to know is, who makes these lists and what really qualifies as a “book you must read before you die”? Love, Nik

PS: AI, does #1 look familiar? Because I’m pretty sure it wouldn’t have been on my “must-read” list…

What’s everyone reading these days?! I just got my first killer cold of the season (occupational hazard. can’t tell you how many of my toddlers have coughed/sneezed INTO MY MOUTH during therapy in the last couple of weeks). Anyway. I could use some new material! ~LP

Hah! This is only partly true… Love, Nik

Otlet's Shelf

I’m thinking I may need to make a blog with this theme so I can have a virtual bookshelf of all of my favorite books. ORRRRR perhaps we need to make one for LWS so we can share our favorite books with each other?! Love, Nik

Track New Book(s)

This site sounds like it’d come in handy!

Track New Book keeps track of new books we’d like to read so we don’t have to. Just tell the site what authors, subjects, or keywords interest you, and whenever a new book is released that meets your criteria¬†you’ll receive an email letting you know.

I’m always on the look-out for new books to read, so I think I’m going to have to check this out! Love, Nik

This one goes out to you fellow book lovers. I may have cut back to being in only 2 (of 3) book clubs this year, but I kinda wish Better World Books wanted to sponsor my reading habits, hah! Love, Nik

Palo Alto by James Franco

Have any of you girls read this? I’m not expecting greatness but I am a sucker for reading about places I’ved lived/been and this collection of short stories all take place in the Bay Area. Love, Nik

I’m totally adding this book to my wishlist! As a chronic apartment dweller and hopefully one day, condo dweller (I just never envision myself owning a house…weird?), I think these tips would be great! I’d love to have squash growing on my patio! -AI

What Should I Read Next?

The greatest website to date! This site allows you to type in a favorite book/author and will then generate a list of like-minded literature! Love! -AI

Sloane Crosley: How Did You Get This Number

I enjoyed Sloane Crosley’s “I Was Told There’d Be Cake” and am looking forward to her new collection of essays, “How Did You Get This Number” to arrive in my latest Amazon order. In the meantime, I’ll take listening to her read aloud one of the essays. Love, Nik

Hah! Meet the man whose arms grace the cover of Bossypants. (For the record, Nate grimaces every time he sees the cover - it kinda creeps him out for some reason. Ridiculous.) If any of you ladies have started, what do you think of the book so far?  Love, Nik

Stylist's Guide to NYC

Samantha! This book looks pretty fab and I think you need to own it. (Apparently you can find it at Anthro?)

Love, Nik

ShelfLuv

I always thought these sites would be kind of handy to keep track of books you’ve read. (Though, I haven’t logged into my GoodReads account in years… whoops.) Love, Nik

Books?

What are you girls reading right now? I’m currently reading “Half Broke Horses” and just picked up “Pillars of the Earth.” I’m kind of not loving “Half Broke Horses,” which is a bummer since I ADORED “The Glass Castle.” I’m excited for Amazon to ship me “Bossypants” and “Social Animal.” -AI
