1. There are more wonderful books in the world than I will ever be able to read. (And yes, I realize this is a fact not only of my life, but also of the lives of every book lover in all of time and space.) Currently reading: THE STORIED LIFE OF A.J. FIKRY, by Gabrielle Zevin, and A BRIEF HISTORY OF TIME, by Stephen Hawking.

Have a great week, my friends. Peace…
