Blog Notes:

You are now looking at a “Business” WordPress site! I’m excited to see what I can do with all the plug-ins that are available to make the blog even more user friendly.

Pinterest users – talk to me! I need some help… who are these people and are they reading my posts? Is this just a different audience?

The BBC posted this article – I love the idea of saving books and giving them a new life! The shop where books are free – from Harry Potter to maths texts.

How is this possible? Facebook turns 15 today. I learned a new word from The Economist- The company has fostered a virtual “me-conomy”, where people (over)share their feelings, photos and comments.

Sometimes you just can’t. To help the guilt that comes with a lazy dayHow to have a Productive Lazy Day – this is a fantastic article from 2018 with some ideas on how to have a mental health day but still get at least one thing done. Thanks Emily!

The Week Ahead:

It’s looking like a quiet week and I’m hoping to get in lots of reading!

Valentines Day is coming up soon so I’m thinking about some of my favorite treats to make – my mom’s cherry cupcakes are the best. 💕

New Events:

February 15 – Jill Santopolo with Taylor Jenkins Reid

February 17 – Dani Shapiro in conversation will be actress/author Jamie Lee Curtis to discuss her new memoir Inheritance.

Hope you have a wonderful week with all five star reads and all the time to read them.

Love, Jaymi
