So, I’m reading a book about sourdough.

It’s fiction, and no, the main character isn’t a loaf of bread (in case you were wondering). Bread does, however, play a silent but omnipresent supporting role as a very tasty cast member, ha ha!

The book’s called Sourdough, by Robin Sloan, and it’s about a young woman who moonlights as a sourdough bread baker by night, while she works as a programmer for a robotics company in San Francisco by day.

No, really, I’m serious! You can’t make this stuff up!

Well, I mean, you can…

Anyway, the glutinous puns are glorious! — although I recognize that it might be a Karen thing to enjoy passages about feeding live yeast starters and building backyard brick ovens this much. I stayed up late reading it last night and dreamed about rising dough and proofing baskets into the early morning.

Oh, and check this out…

Don’t you love books that have maps in them?? I do. This one has a map from right around here because it takes place in the Bay Area. As we speak, I’m typing this from Novato, which is slightly northwest of the little drawing of the Golden Gate Bridge, and the town I grew up in, Union City, is just south of Alameda.

If you need me today, I’ll be reading this. I’ll have my nose between the pages, and if it’s warm enough, I may even read a chapter by the pool.

Ah… 😎🏖️

For a little light reading, here are some of the stories from around the Interwebs that caught my eye this week…

I feel totally weird if I don’t read enough during the week. For me, it’s like working out, and the more I read, the better I feel.

Which reminds me…Saturday HIIT class. Soon. (Like in 15 minutes, whoops!)

You wanna go do some burpies with me? NO!?

Alright, alright. You have fun reading, then. 🙂 Enjoy the rest of your day, OK?

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
