EBooks are one of our go-to ways to stay sane, when bored, cabin-feverish or stressed out. And there are so many great authors and bookstores who need our support right now. At the moment, we're curled up with Nobody Will Tell You This But Me by Bess Kalb and Thin Places by Jordan Kisner. Pro tip: if buying books isn't possible for you right now, your local public library probably uses the Libby app to get audiobooks and e-books to you, even while branches are closed. Links Nobody Will Tell You This But Me by Bess Kalb Bess is hilarious on Twitter Thin Placesby Jordan Kisner Jordan's recent Atlantic article on reiki Amina is also reading... Wow, No Thank You by Samantha Irby Save Yourself by Cameron Esposito Ann is also reading... Glitter Up the Dark by Sasha Geffen Look by Zan Romanoff Bess is reading...
