Happy Monday, everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend and that you’re ready to get started on the week ahead. 🙂 I get to spend all week up north with my husband (both still working, but it’s still more time together!), so I’m feeling pretty good about that. There are some interesting-looking books on sale today (Empire of Sand is amazing), so be sure to have a look at those, and have a great day!

Also, to anyone who has sent me inbox messages/chat messages in the past couple weeks or so: I’m going to try to get back to you this week sometime! Tumblr has not been showing me notifications of new things lately and I never remember to check on my own so I apologize for missing any of you!

Find past book deals here–many of which are still on sale!

Every time you take a step, even when you don’t want to… When it hurts, when it means you rub chins with death, or even if it means dying, that’s good. Anything that moves ahead, wins. No chess game was ever won by the player who sat for a lifetime thinking over his next move.

You’re afraid of making mistakes. Don’t be. Mistakes can be profited by. Man, when I was young I shoved my ignorance in people’s faces. They beat me with sticks. By the time I was forty my blunt instrument had been honed to a fine cutting point for me. If you hide your ignorance, no one will hit you and you’ll never learn.

“A good night sleep, or a ten minute bawl, or a pint of chocolate ice cream, or all three together, is good medicine.”

God, how we get our fingers in each other’s clay. That’s friendship, each playing the potter to see what shapes we can make of each other.
