Do you have plans for the long weekend? We have exactly no plans, although if the sun decides to show its face, there will definitely be as much outside time as possible. I’m also looking for some good books, so if you have any suggestions for awesome fiction (new or not so new), I’m all ears.

Some links to take you into the weekend…

I love blind letterpress and red on white.

These shoes with their happy yellow toe want to live on my feet, via wit + delight.

There are no words for this botanical gorgeousness, except gorgeousness.

Have a happy long weekend! Oh, and don’t forget: you have until midnight tonight to enter to win a gorgeous album from Velvet Raptor.

    I absolutely LOVE Charles Kuralt’s book, “A Life on the Road.” Also, I just finished “The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay,” per advice of The Boyfriend, and it was really really really good!

    Happy reading!

    That photo is adorable. “Marcovaldo” by Italo Calvino is my favourite book to read. I recommend it to everyone I know.

    “Russian Winter” by Daphne Kalotay is great so far! I just saw Swan Lake at the NYCB and of course saw Black Swan when it came out, so I’m in the ballet mood…but RW is great even if you’re not.

    If you want something that is just plain entertaining to read, I’d go with “The Secret History of the Pink Carnation” by Lauren Willig. There are quite a few books in the series, but they are fun and full of romance: I’ve been glued to them for the past couple months : )

    Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout is what I am currently reading, and I highly reccomend it. It has a slow start, but give it a chance. The series of short stories are so good!

    Have you read the Maisie Dobbs mysteries by Jacqueline Winspear? Sooooo good. Female detective in London between the World Wars. I tore through them last summer and I’m not ever that much of a mystery fan.

    Also just read Brooklyn by Colm Toibin, which was a quick lovely read. Julia Child’s My Life in France was fantastic and it’s not just because she was a fellow Smithie. My husband loved it as well, which is saying something because we rarely both love the same books. It was funny, sweet and made us want to immediately pack our bags for Paris a job and a two year old notwithstanding.

    I wish I had a book recommendation for you. Instead I’ve been ‘reading’ the latest Barefoot Contessa cookbook.

    (oh, you said FICTION… Just Kids is nonfiction, obviously, but it’s still sooo good!)

    I just finished a book called Schooled by Anisha Lakhani. It’s a fiction book about a new teacher that gets caught up in the NYC private school world. Pretty funny!

    Absolutely ANYTHING by Charles de Lint. I am reading “Muse & Reverie”, a collection of short stories, at the moment. I have yet to come across one of his (oh-so-many) books that doesn’t live on in my memory long after the covers close and I shelve the volume…
