The New York Times bestselling author shares her favorite reads on Substack and beyond.
Not only is there a Jane Austen Substack, it’s probably way better than you are imagining! We’d love to have you engaging with our conversations about the badassness of Austen at the Austen Connection - where we’re talking about how Jane Austen’s stories connect to us today and connect us to each other. :) :)
Another great selection of 'stackers. Thank you
Good stuff. Yes: Writers are usually voracious readers first and foremost.
The best Substack for aspiring writers is George Saunders Story Club. https://substackcdn.com/image/fetch/f_auto,q_auto:good,fl_progressive:steep/https%3A%2F%2Fsubstack-post-media.s3.amazonaws.com%2Fpublic%2Fimages%2F25b06e13-6ab6-41af-b67c-5159042ff8b0_2500x427.jpeg?utm_source=substack&utm_medium=email
I love these questions and recommendations! Will be keeping an eye out for more of the 'Reading Room' :)
This is a lovely article.
try my substack! carolbach.substack.com
all things reading and writing, including a new thing starting this weekend: book reviews!
I’ll add that I love Emma’s newsletter. It’s so fun to parachute into her mind!
Love this article
OH MY! I'll be studying these links for a month! Thank you so much. I've been looking for somthing like this!
A reporter's memoir "With the Bark Off" by Neal Spelce, with the Forward by Dan Rather, is another great read. It reports on his personal contact with politicians, but it is not about politics.
(Also, great list - just signed up for Hung Up!)
I also adore Hunter Harris' Hung Up!
"I read in my office too, which contains a couch but no desk. Really I am always trying to be as horizontal as possible." Honestly, same. Sofa > desk every time.
Loved these answers and looking forward to catching up with Emma's Substack archive! ✨
As a new writer on Substack I appreciate the valuable thoughts and ideas presented by many writers I find. I try to incorporate some new ideas all the time, and although I seem to be writing mostly on political issues, I keep an open mind to the other things floating around in my gray matter. Thanks for being on Substack, and maybe you can check me out and comment for me. I would appreciate it. Have a great day Emma. Ralph Menweg...McCactus
More than anything else, I want to know about that Wisconsin license plate on the bottom shelf of her bookcase... 😊
