Are you a part of the #RWBookClub? Earlier this week, Reese Witherspoon announced this week’s pick: The Alice Network by Kate Quinn! The pick was decided by a vote and this lush historical fiction novel about the real-life network of female spies who operated in France during WWI was ultimately chosen. Read more about the book here and see Reese’s announcement post here!
2. Books + Stationery = Happiness

I don’t know about you, Savvy Readers, but I can never resist a beautiful bookish notebook. To my delight (and my wallet’s dismay), Buzzfeed Books recently shared a list of 11 bookish notebooks here. I could stare at those beautiful notebooks all day…

Guys. I met the cookie maker. She gave me the cookie. Her name is Rebecca. Eat my sweet face. pic.twitter.com/idh0NGge7T

The wonderful Roxane Gay was in Toronto this week to promote her new book Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body! She was interviewed on stage by Kim Katrin Milan and it was a fantastic evening on feminism, fat phobia, and Roxane’s take on the Rob/Blac Chyna situation. But perhaps the highlight was the cookie in the tweet above. It’s so masterful that it’s almost too good to eat.
