Posted by

We’re getting together next week to discuss our January book select, Chang-rae Lee’s On Such A Full Sea, but we couldn’t wait to tell you who won the autographed copy!

The Bookstore On The Corner

Posted by

Wandering through a bookstore of any size is my idea of a day well spent. But make that store a quaint, independently owned shop, and it’s that much better.  I love the places where the owner sits behind the cash register all day and knows the exact location of every book they sell off the [...]

We’re back to Book Club Monday here on the Living blog, and we are so excited to share our newest addition to the book club lineup with you, Chang-Rae Lee’s On Such A Full Sea. You may have gotten a sneak peek in the January/February issue of Martha Stewart Living, but if you didn’t, you’re [...]

Book Club Party: The Goldfinch

Posted by

Welcome back book-clubbers! The holidays were so busy over here that no one had a chance to meet for book club, so we’re a little delayed. We’re hoping you’ll forgive us when you find out we’re having a book club-themed Monday on the blog! We’ll fill you in on our wrap-up now, then check back [...]

Holiday Book Club: The Goldfinch

Posted by

Per book club tradition, we’ve only selected one book to tackle over November and December. With two big breaks that split up the months, and lots of holiday events that can distract from reading time, we usually find it more manageable to dive into just one great book. While we make be taking it easy [...]

Book Club Party – One Summer: America 1927

Posted by

We know it’s already November and we’re wrapping up our October select a little late, but the end of last month got a little zany with tricking and treating, so we hope you’ll forgive us! We got together last week to touch base about our latest read, Bill Bryson’s One Summer: America 1927. For many [...]

October Book Club – One Summer: America 1927

Posted by

For our October book club select, we wanted to do something a little new different! While we’ve tackled memoirs, novels and short stories, we’ve never really dug into a non-fiction book. When we found out that Bill Bryson’s newest, One Summer: America 1927, was coming out this week, we couldn’t wait to start in! From [...]

Welcome back, book clubbers! We got together yesterday to discuss September’s spooky select, Marisha Pessl’s Night Film and to announce our giveaway winner. Congratulations to Jessie Behm!  Your autographed copy is winging its way to you, and we can’t wait to hear what you think. Don’t read too many details below, we don’t want to [...]

Our Finds: Fall Scarves

Posted by

Scarves are total lifesavers on those days when the weather hasn’t made up its mind—too warm for a coat but chilly enough that you wish for something to wrap around your shoulders. With the a/c still cranked up in our offices, a scarf draped over the back of an office chair is essential, too. Here [...]

Must-Read: Martha Stewart’s Cakes

Posted by

This weekend, we plan to haul out the flour, sugar, and our latest kitchen staple: Martha Stewart’s Cakes, our new baking book. Quiet Saturdays are the best times for baking projects, don’t you agree? Whip up a layer cake for a friend’s birthday, coffee cake to enjoy at breakfast alongside your coffee, or a fruit-filled torte just [...]
