Sunday Smatterings

Sunday Smatterings 4.22.18

Happy Sunday, gentle readers. I hope you're getting lots of rest for the week ahead.

Slow down, make a fresh pot of tea, and get your read on. I have some links for you:


Here's what happened on the Internets this week:


Recipe: Slow Cooker Pesto Chicken. This look so easy and delicious, especially for busy writers. If you try it, let me know how it is! I do love pesto...
 

Feline Good with Our Favorite Literary Cats. The New York Public Library cataloged some of the best cats in literature. I can totally get on board with this.


11 Ridiculously Overdue Library Books (that were finally returned). We've all been there—but perhaps not quite at this level...
 

35,000 Certified Gluten-Free Products. This database is a dream for those of us who are celiacs or gluten-sensitive. Win!
 

This Librarian Posted About A Library "Mystery" On Twitter & The Story Has The Best Ending. I just love this.


Judy Blume's Advice for Aspiring Writers. I adore Judy Blume (ahem, see here), so I was delighted to see bite-sized pieces of her advice distilled into this list.


The Best Breathing Technique for Anxiety. Just in case you need some instant zen. 


And closer to home:

It's official: The AP loves THE SIXTH DAY! Catherine and I were tickled pink when we heard the news. Have you gotten your copy yet?

And check out the latest episode of A WORD ON WORDS – where I chat with former US Poet Laureate, Billy Collins! Witty and charming, just like his verse, Mr. Collins and I talked about his newest collection, THE RAIN IN PORTUGAL


That's it from me. Y'all have a great week, pat a kitty or two, and we'll talk again soon.

xo,
