The Saturday Book Shop – How Far You Have Come

Morgan Harper Nichols has a marvelous new book How Far You Have Come which was just released a few weeks ago.

I talked about her All Along You Were Blooming book here a few months back, and I’m just as excited and enthusiastic about this new book.

New stories, prose, poems, and illustrations by an exceptionally talented author and artist.


Reese Witherspoon has some great selections over at Reese’s Book Club (and an app too!). I am also especially fond of the marvelously thoughtful Brain Pickings by Maria Popova, Austin Kleon’s brilliant and eclectic weekly newsletter and blog, AND: Elizabeth Gilbert’s new Onward book club as sources of sharing a wide wealth of writings and books. Well worth being on their mailing lists.

That’s it for now, other than a plea to support local independent booksellers whenever you can—these intrepid entrepreneurs have made the publishing world go round for a long long time and are essential nooks of civilization and creative caffeine everywhere! 

What are you reading now? Would love to hear what’s on your nightstand table or in your book bag or e-reader if you want to share in the comments. And if not, that’s cool too. To be here to celebrate books and reading is enough. See you most likely next Saturday …  I’ve taken some extra time recently to just read, write, get vaccinated, be grateful, make some art, and just enjoy being as well as being out and about a bit more. Sending reading smiles and book hooray thanks to everyone checking in at The Saturday Book Shop. 📚

    “There are more ideas up ahead of me” was so much fun to see; it gave me a big smile. Reminded me of when I was a kid and drew imaginary adventures in spiral notebooks, with paths and scenery (and the occasional dragon) going from one page to the next. 🙂

      Meg—love this note—thank you! Can just imagine those wonderful spiral notebooks… I still love notebooks & keep several mixed media type “smoosh book” / cut-n-paste-ephemera-life-bits-and-pieces going! Really appreciate your comments & have been busy doing different re-entry things now that I’m double vaxxed. Look forward to getting back to the blog soon! 🌺
