Hello, hello, it me! :)

With all that is going on in my life, I don’t have the will or wherewithal to compile the annual reading list this year.
So I’ll keep sending you folks, the lists that I come across and find compelling enough to share.

I’ve always ended my annual books-to-read list with the Marginalian.
(the erstwhile Brain Pickings aka Maria Popova)
And I always say, Maria saved my life.
For nearly a decade, during times of deep dark despair, it was her posts that kept me going.

I’ve always wished that I could weave word tapestries like she does.
(Or be as succinct and pithy as Mandy Brown. Someday I will be.)

Without further ado, here’s Maria’s list.
From art to philosophy to whimsy, there’s something for everyone.
The one I look forward to reading the most is Haleh Liza Gafori’s rendition of Rumi.

I hope you find something in there too!
Happy Reading :)
