    spent her childhood as an extremely shy person and still sometimes fights those tendencies I highly recommend YEAR OF YES to anyone who wants to break the cycle of no and step outside of their comfort zone What I m Reading 11 22 63 by Stephen King I ve decided that the definition of unputdownable in the OED should now be 11 22 63 by Stephen King I have lost sleep and work time racing through yet savoring every word of this masterfully written time travel what if alternate reality tale of a man who travels back through a time warp rabbit hole in the back of a diner that lands him in 1958 where he must spend the next five years planning how to thwart the assassination of JFK On the way there is more of the past to tamper with survive and fall in love with especially because it is where he meets his soulmate But nothing is ever easy when it comes to changing the past no sir The past will do anything it can to stay put The obdurate past as King puts it Indeed The past is also harmonic according to 11 22 63 In fact the act of reading 11 22 63 seems to generate its own harmonies for as I entered the last third of the novel an ad for the event series based on the work caught my eye on the Hulu home screen Now I won t have to feel as sad as I usually would do upon turning the last page of such an enthralling mind expanding read I ll have eight episodes to look forward to Am hoping they do this brilliant work justice What I m Reading Everything by Gayle Forman Having raced through Gayle Forman s profoundly moving If I Stay I immediately devoured the second book in the series Where She Went And that was it I was hooked My binge continued with Just One Day Just One Year and Just One Night and finished for now with her courageous I Was Here There s a lot that I love about these novels They are packed with wisdom without a hint of preachiness They are brimming with love without a drop of sentimentality And they are refreshingly unpredictable Instead of relying on those familiar devices one often sees in stories about love the meet cute the hate at first sight that turns into uncontrollable attraction Forman gives us the messiness of real life which rarely turns out the way we think it will more EMMA 200th Anniversary Edition This luxurious new edition of EMMA features a series of pieces by Austen scholar and professor Juliette Wells who informs us in her introduction that this is a reader s edition not a scholarly one With the needs and wishes of her students in mind Dr Wells has included in this edition an abundance of extras that make EMMA s world and its language as accessible as possible

    since the days of getting laced into a corset so stiff that one could barely lean over let alone breathe It s no wonder ladies had to carry around smelling salts or vinaigrettes as they were called in Jane Austen s day Those Mr Darcy types may have been swoon worthy but it was likely more a lack of oxygen than romantic flutterings that caused ladies to faint It wasn t only ladies who were wearing corsets or stays The Prince Regent was a favorite target of cartoonists for trying to mask his size with a corset Today we call these instruments of torture shapewear Sounds friendly and appealing doesn t it After all who doesn t want to have a shape The promise and the reality of shapewear however can be two very different things If you ve ever had a shapewear nightmare of your own you will love Melissa McCarthy s story Click here to read more Things Jane Austen s Characters Do That Would Be Weird If You Did Them Now we know why people have been looking at us strangely Do you have what it takes to time travel Photo by Wonderlane We ve all read
