Heidi, when I receive your favorites lists, I can literally spend hours, hours! moving happily from one to the next and on to the many connections found within each of them. On a grey rainy Marin afternoon, the stories and inspirations are just what I need... thank you.


I read The Luminaires by Eleanor Catton, it is long but so worth reading. She is only 24 years old and her writing style is exquisite! Also, The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery is also a great read!

I am reading The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern~magical!

Nicola Thea

I love this comment thread already! Bookmarked!


Book suggestions - Midnight Valiant, Bobby Haas The Tiger, John Valiant The painter, Peter Heller Ocean at the End of the Lane, Neil Gaiman


I listened to THE SHORT AND TRAGIC LIFE OF ROBERT PEACE: A BRILLIANT YOUNG MAN WHO LEFT NEWARK FOR THE IVY LEAGUE by Jeff Hobbs. I'm sure it will be equally compelling to read it as it was to listen to it. Highly, highly recommend. Happy reading!

Lovely favorites..and what is the name of the book in your lead photo? Very intriguing


Oh, good reads! I'm tapping into Elizabeth Scarboro's My Foreign Cities: A Memoir and Wendy Ortiz's Excavation. Rough subjects, but they read like fiction. Enjoy!


Books: The Underground Girls of Kabul by Jenny Nordberg; Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie; Lets Explore Diabetes with Owls by David Sedaris; and The Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker.


Been reading the new David J. book - Who Killed Mr. Moonlight. Some fascinating insights into the early days of the band Bauhaus. Most interesting is their interaction with some of the amazing figures of the 70s and 80s - Burroughs, Bowie and the rest.


Beautiful ruins by Jess Walters

Fiction, All The Light You Cannot See, by Anthony Doerr. My book club concurred that it was one of the BEST books any f us had EVER read. We range in age from 40-75. Check it out!


I am reading a FANTASTIC book called Consider The Fork by Bee Wilson. It's a fantastic historical/anthropological book that looks not at food but at HOW food is made and eaten. Revelations like cutlery might have affected the shape of our jaws?!?! and that the romans had pans made from circles of metals to disperse heat evenly and avoid heat spots CENTURIES AGO! I find it soo fascinating and exciting and could talk about it forEVER!


I highly recommend Ruth Ozeki's A Tale for the Time Being and Niall Williams' A History of the Rain

I've been reading Suki Kim's "Without You There is No Us," a memoir about her time teaching English to the children of top North Korean officials at a boarding school outside Pyongyang. Her writing is gorgeous, and the way she interacted with these kids and the lessons shared back and forth are fascinating, and they come from a place that we don't really have access to in America. Highly, highly recommended.


Great place , the salt and pepper are actually next to each other .

Some reading recommendations... A collection of essays called The Empathy Exams by Leslie Jamison. Also, Mycophilia by Eugenia Bone.


omg, when Japanese people go outside the box (eg: fashion designer) they are invariably SO COOL.


Finally reading Dave Eggers, The Circle. Happy Thanksgiving!


I feel like I've only been reading cookbooks and recipe articles for the past two months, including my own ha! But I am also re-reading one of my all time favorite books I refer to now and then: Excuse Me Your Life Is Waiting , by Lynn Grabhorn. Helps me get right back on track and focused on what I want from this life of mine. I suspect you would love it !
