Weekend Motel Reading

We did an overnight in New York, where we spent Saturday afternoon walking around the Storm King Art Center (a sculpture park) and part of Sunday letter boxing. Saturday night we spent in a motel room where I caught up on some bookmarked reading and watched reruns of Archer, which never gets old.

The Yearning to Learn From Our Lives. The essay linked to in this post cannot be accessed. However, the excerpt quoted includes the following: "We all yearn to learn from our lives so we do not stumble like Sisyphus up the same hill over and over but, instead, discover the art of living well." Good opportunity to mention that I'm reading How to Live: A Life of Montaigne in One Question and Twenty Attempts at an Answer by Sarah Bakewell.

Do Book Tours Sell Books? Maybe Not, But That Shouldn't Stop You From Having A Good Time. Good opportunity to mention that I'm blowing off tai chi class Tuesday evening to go hear an author at a local Barnes & Noble.

That's Too Much: The Problem With Prolific Authors. And he never mentions the self-published writers who publish every year, sometimes multiple books every year.

Dear Advice Person Lady: Advice for Writers. Honestly, I read this earlier.

Founding Father Fails  I've read a couple of Vowell's books.
