3 Books To Add To The “To Be Read” List

The “To Be Read List”…. Does it ever decrease? No, not really. It seems to grow exponentially at my house. But Traveling With T is not going to make life any easier- I’ve got 3 more books for you, the readers of Traveling With T, to add to the TBR list!

What Nora Knew by Linda Yellin

Molly Hallberg is a thirty-nine-year-old divorced writer living in New York City who wants her own column, a Wikipedia entry, and to never end up in her family’s Long Island upholstery business. For the past four years Molly’s been on staff for an online magazine, covering all the wacky assignments. She’s snuck vibrators through security scanners, speed-dated undercover, danced with the Rockettes, and posed nude for a Soho art studio.

Fearless in everything except love, Molly is now dating a forty-four-yearold chiropractor. He’s comfortable, but safe. When Molly is assigned to write a piece about New York City romance “in the style of Nora Ephron,” she flunks out big-time. She can’t recognize romance. And she can’t recognize the one man who can go one-on-one with her, the one man who gets her. But with wit, charm, whip-smart humor, and Nora Ephron’s romantic comedies, Molly learns to open her heart and suppress her cynicism in this bright, achingly funny novel.

Futuristic Friday: What Books Are You Looking Forward To Reading?

futuristic friday

Hello and welcome all to the first Futuristic Friday hosted by Traveling With T and Katie from Doing Dewey. I’m pretty excited to unveil this new jointly hosted feature (and I hope you are excited to read and see what it is all about!)

What is Futuristic Friday?

Back in 2013, I was thinking about starting a new feature. I toyed around with the idea of a Throwback Thursday- but was unsure that I could maintain that on a semi-regular basis. I also wanted a partner- someone I could trust to help me with the feature, someone who could be a good bloggy person to chat with, perhaps someone who was the yang to my yin. I started thinking about all the bloggy people I interact with and Katie kept popping in my head- she’s got a broad reading taste, I knew her from She Reads, and I enjoyed talking with her. And days later, Futuristic Friday was born!
