📚 Today’s tip: Share reading recommendations with a friend.
A good book can be the greatest comfort, as Saul Austerlitz writes on Medium. Throughout the pandemic, Austerlitz found that he wanted “stories to take me away, to transport me somewhere else.” When he found himself hitting yet another pandemic wall recently, he decided send some of his most beloved books to friends: “Books had saved my life more times than I could count, and I hoped some of their power might rub off on those I loved.”
Recommend — or go ahead and send — some of your favorite books to the people who need them right now. Ask what they think you should read next. It takes some of the cognitive load out of picking your next read. And more importantly, it’s a lovely way to share comfort in what continue to be turbulent times.
