(Mostly) 2021 Baltimore book highlights

Okay, there are also some 2020 releases included here, but let's give each other some grace...

Losing bell hooks, remembering Greg Tate, being single in America, speeding, offline and the wilderness, cheesy pasta, the Throat Goat, and more

A lot happened on the internet this week.

Indulging Sags' love of exploring new territory

More than a hodge-podge of history gained while gallivanting around Portugal, the book is a love song to the growers and keepers of the age-old tradition of winemaking.

The Supreme Court, Jeremy Strong, an epic art story, the worst Michelin-starred restaurant, internet rat poison, Peloton v. Sex and the City, and more

So much has happened since the last time I was on the internet!

Blue whales, the history and evolution of funerals, Elizabeth Bishop, Sufjan Stevens, the National Dog Show, and more

The internet gave me a lot to think about this week.

Hyperobjects, hippo ranching, turtle stealing, Pamela Council's fine-art nail art, Hanif Abdurraqib, Adele, and more

The internet was sublime this week! It was also just a lot.

Shipwrecks, feral monkeys, fraudulent organic food, up south music, Kyle Rittenhouse, Engracia Figueroa, Emily Ratajkowski, and more

The internet was both adventurous and tragic this week.

The perfect read for Scorpio season!

Sexfluencers, changing death rituals, Summer Walker, whale murder mysteries, new newsletters, and more

The internet was alright this week, but I found myself returning to some of my favorites.

Katie Couric, Brené Brown, Dune, Hollywood's most famous grave, Megan Thee Stallion, Tori Amos, and more

The internet wasn’t my vibe this week, but I did find some gems and lots of music.

The Dave Chappelle fallout continues, sharks are returning to Cape Cod, and the history of micronations grows in prominence.

The internet was a bit of a slow burn this week. Highlights: Reality TV owes Black women everything, “Notes on Shade,” the final season of Insecure, Yasmine Williams, The Believer, the Book of Revelation, ghostwriting, Colin Powell, falconry, and Alec Baldwin. 

Kumail Nanjiani, Slack, Ronald McDonald is dead, Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly, Kameelah Janan Rasheed and Alexis Pauline Gumbs, and more

There was so much beautiful work on the internet this week.

Being Black in America—much less Omaha, Nebraska, where the sisters were born—is far from easy

The best book to represent Libra this October is You’ll Never Believe What Happened to Lacey by sisters Amber Ruffin and Lacey Lamar.

Simone Biles, Mr. X, The United States of America vs. Alfredo Martinez, Deana Lawson, R. Kelly, and more

I enjoyed the internet this week.
