Book Club – February 2021

For me, the absolute best place to read is a coffee shop.  It’s the perfect amount of background noise and the best ambiance.  Here are the two standouts that I read this month:
Long Bright River” by Liz Moore
 I loved this addictive procedural about two sisters navigating the opioid crisis from opposite sides.  I couldn’t put it down – it was unglamorous, but compelling and heart-wrenching.  
A Promised Land” by Barack Obama
I listened to the audio version of this book, which I can’t recommend enough.  I like that you can hear him wince when talking about his frustrations or hear the joy and satisfaction in his voice when he tells a corny joke.  It made me feel so nostalgic thinking about the 2008 election – which was a very exciting time in my life.

THE MARCH EDIT

Right now, everything I’m buying is to make life easier and add pops of color.  As always, I’m trying to find new ways to stay organized and keep things simple.  I want to pick up this bronzerfrom Milk because I don’t need a brush to apply it.  I’m hoping this AirPod case will make them easier to find in my backpack.

As a devoted Ikea patron, I can’t believe it took me so long to get a Poäng chair.  I didn’t think it would be as comfortable as it is, but I’m basically falling asleep in it right now.  The cantilevered chair has been in production for over 40 years, and now I see why.  I also love this set of drawersI am using to organize my art supplies.

Terracotta has been catching my eye lately, like this Baggu tote, which can fold up and be easily packed.  This Margaret Howell scarf is also a good touch of color.  I want a pair of these blue light filtering glasses.  I realize I spend a lot of time looking at screens and should probably try and do something to keep my eyes safer.
