Ever since reading COMING TO MY SENSES I've wanted to learn more about perfume--so I finally made the trip to Twisted Lily in Brooklyn and I may be hooked. I recommend this book wholeheartedly for awaking your interest in scent--but let me just say that I warned you: you'll never smell things the same at again.

AJBowers That is pretty awesome! 3y
Reviewsbylola I worked at Lush for a few years and the founders are very invested in scent and fragrances and how they make you feel. We received a lot of training on it and it was always super interesting. A lot of the tidbits we learned I reflect back to from time to time. 3y

FountainBookstore I collect perfumes too @SusanInTiburon. And I love this post. I've always found it frustrating that my nose gets "tired" and I can't try different smells for hours. But then that's also what makes scent even more ephemeral. Also recommended: Perfumes by Turin and a Sanchez. (edited) 3y
SusanInTiburon @FountainBookstore I love that book! My copy is so marked up I don't even NEED the index it should have had. 3y
FountainBookstore @SusanInTiburon You're right! That book didn't have an index. I think you and I should petition Penguin for an updated edition! For so many reasons. 3y

All Grown Up | Jami Attenberg

The ARC of Jami Attenberg's ALL GROWN UP came with this series of buttons, which I uncleverly left out on the table. My 6yo found them and had many questions. "What's 'the sinking ship that is my flesh' mean?" "What's a shrieker? Why would you yell in bed; you're supposed to be SLEEPING."

If these buttons don't entice you to read this book, nothing will.

The elevator pitch is "family adopts chimpanzee as member of the family," but this book is so much more: it's a powerful inquiry of how we talk about race (or more often don't) in America. A phenomenal read, and a must-read at this political moment. You'll be hooked by page 2, I promise.

"When I was first thinking of myself as a writer back in my teens, the shorthand for that was fame. But then I started to understand what writing was and who writers were... [They're] super-famous in our world, but most of the world doesn't know them. So pretty quickly, to me it wasn't about fame—it was about accomplishment. Once you let go of that fame thing, it's the first step in really being able to focus on doing good work." — Cheryl Strayed
