Friday Fancies

I took a couple of days off from work this week to enjoy a longer Easter holiday. I'll be spending some of that time making some holiday treats, like the chocolate nests below. Yesterday I had a treat of another sort when I visited what is purportedly the largest used book sale on the East Coast. I'll give a full report of the treasures I found next week.

Some noteworthy things from the past week:

Hilariously bad book covers.

Mindy Kaling has a new book in the works!

The second season of Call the Midwife premieres on PBS this Sunday.

And is anyone else disappointed by the news that Amazon bought Goodreads?


  1. I can't wait to hear about what you got at the book sale.

    Thanks for the heads up about Call the Midwife - I loved the first season and didn't know it was starting up again.

    I am disappointed about the Amazon/Goodreads issue, but I haven't decided if I'm going to jump ship or not - what about you?

    Have a lovely Easter weekend!

    1. I don't think I'll jump ship...yet. I've gotten so used to logging my To Read list there that the thought of switching it over to some other system is pretty daunting. But I may chance my mind depending on how things go.

  2. Your blog is now my source for late-breaking news! I hadn't heard about the goodreads/amazon acquisition. But i just read a few articles:

    1. Interesting. I've actually never been that impressed with the Goodreads-generated book recommendations for me. I wonder if there will be a noticeable change in them once Amazon has a hand in them.

  3. i didn't know that amazon bought goodreads. now they'll have more information about what we read. what else will happen?

    your chocolate nests are adorable! happy tuesday, n
