Favorite finds from around the web:
Downton Abbey hotel to open on Valentine’s Day. Book my suite, please.
A psychological explanation for why ‘Serial’ drives some people crazy. “Surprisingly, someone’s stance on “Serial”’s ambiguity may actually tell you a lot about who he or she is as a person. How do you handle ambiguity, whether in real life or fiction?”
A daily reading plan for Shakespeare’s works. “After searching high and low, I could find no daily reading plan for Shakespeare. So I created one, and read all the works in 2013—even the plays Shakespeare co-authored—in less than half an hour a day. You can do it too.”
What I’m reading:
Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. I’m listening to this one on Audible. I’m less than 2 hours into this 18 hour book, but I’m enjoying it so far.
We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves: A Novel by Karen Joy Fowler. I started this because I realized on New Year’s Day that it was already overdue at the library. The library was closed for the holiday, so I thought I might as well read it. Let’s hope it’s worth the fines.
Chance or the Dance by Thomas Howard. This was one of the books I’d been meaning to read that I resolved to read in 2014. 2014 is over, and I’m almost done with the book. Almost.
