Maphead: Charting the Wide, Weird World of Geography Wonks by Ken Jennings. I found this in a Little Free Library in my neighborhood! 🙂 This was an extremely enjoyable look at many things map-related, from the National Geographic Bee to geocaching to Google Earth to maps in fantasy novels (Brandon Sanderson fans take note, as Sanderson and Jennings were college roommates). Jennings’ writing is filled with delightful footnotes and irresistible tidbits of information and at times definitely reminded me of the writing of Bill Bryson.


May was also traumatized by the same storm that traumatized Chaos. Or she’s having an existential crisis. It’s hard to tell from that expression.

Notice his tensed, slightly flexed paw there. And how he’s basically plastered against my leg for comfort.

Art Escapes: Daily Exercises & Inspirations for Discovering Greater Creativity & Artistic Confidence by Dory Kanter. This one’s focused mostly on using watercolors in an art journal, with a little bit about collage. I found some of the watercolor information to be extremely helpful – the author provides detailed information on specific watercolor brands and shades for primary, secondary, and tertiary colors. And although the book was published 13 years ago, the paints are still available.


“I don’t care that it’s nearly 90F, Mom – you should still have our fleecy blanket over your lap so me and the big kitty don’t have to huddle here by your foot instead!” -Mayhem
