1. Flipbacks - My friend Mollie got me one for Christmas (Persuasion by Jane Austen) and I bought myself two more (Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell and Shades of Grey by Jasper Fforde). Flipbacks are pocket-sized books. They are printed sideways, so you read them top to bottom. The binding and covers are very durable, so the books don’t get banged up if you throw them in your purse. They’re a good alternative if you can’t or don’t want to read books on an e-reader. They’re more portable than my iPad.
The only downsides are that they’re expensive (they’re made in the UK) and there are only a limited number of titles available – a mix of current bestsellers and classics.

3. Sweater weather: We’ve been having some rain this week, and I’m taking the opportunity to wear all my sweaters, cardigans and scarves before summer hits. Usually in winter I get anxious for warm weather and want to wear my shorts and tank tops and then in summer I only want to wear my winter clothes. It’s a problem. So I’m trying to enjoy layering while I can.
“It’s my favorite scarf, because it’s a circle, so you never have to think about which end goes on the right or on the left.” -New Girl, Holly (Secrets, 1×19)
4. Netflix: I love being able to watch TV and movies anywhere in my house on my iPad.*
What have you been enjoying this week?
*I mentioned my iPad twice in this post… I’m pretty into it this week too since my computer is still dead.
PS It probably needs to be said that I was not contacted by any of these companies to promote them nor did I receive any compensation for the writing of this post. These are just products/companies that I genuinely like (well, I don’t like American Apparel, but I’m in love with my circle scarf…).
