It's Finally Friday! Links and Things
I got the most awesome belated birthday present from a friend who knows me too well. It's a Harry Potter coloring book, and erasable colored pencils (which I didn't even know existed!). SO fun. On The List App, I shared another series of Juliet's Bookish Na...

In Which I Accidentally Take 9 Months to Read a Book I Really Enjoyed
Ten months ago my friend Meghan and I got to listen to Jacqueline Winspear speak about her new book at the Tucson Festival of Books. It's the second time I've heard Winspear, and as ever, she was very eloquent and intelligent.  A few weeks later, Meghan sur...
