Happy Easter Everyone! (Or to those of you who celebrate anyway.) I hope you’re having a lovely holiday. This is my first (maybe second?) Easter in 7 years that I haven’t had to work, so I’m celebrating that by lying in bed, bingeing on TV shows, and doing some reading. It’s chilly and rainy here, so it’s the perfect day to be lounge-y and lazy.
I’ve been having a strange week, but I’m hoping next week will be better. I need to get out of this weird slump I’m in. But, anyway, moving on.
One thing I wanted to mention today is an Instagram account I follow: @magicofdiversitybookbox. If you’re looking for a book crate that strives for diversity, you should definitely check out this one! You can find more information on their website here. Also, check out an unboxing post my friend April wrote here.
(This is an unsolicited shout out. I am not receiving any compensation/reward for this announcement. I simply want to help out this new crate that is super awesome – and book related!)
