I really need to read the article about quitting books we aren't enjoying because I just finished one I didn't really like and now I'm plowing through another one. Doh!

Thanks for sharing my list of bookish newsletters! And also thank you for sharing so much about book bans ~ it’s a strange, strange world out there and being informed is one of the best / things people can do in this area! That and run for school boards or be on their library boards!

I'm excited to start a new bucket list. I want to explore book fairs, libraries, and hot springs. The former, thanks to you.

You provide so many suggestions each week I can't get through them all in one sitting. I go down a rabbit hole and get lost. Anyway, thank you for the great article.

It would be wonderful to meet in-person as well as some of our fellow readers and writers. That's what it's all about, connecting and community.

Great post, as always! ~ Book banning is (essentially) that someone decides that another person hasn't the right to express their thoughts. It's ridiculous. Nobody forces people to read it unless they want to. This goes against the constitution and our freedom of speech.

Thanks especially for mentioning empathy, which I worry about constantly. The world desperately needs so much more of it.
