Good good links #81

Spring isn’t too far away anymore, friends! Okay, yes, I know that’s a more or less obvious statement but this weekend has felt particularly ready-for-spring so you’ll have to bear my excitement. While we never got a serious winter over here I’m still happy about any early onset of a warmer, brighter season. If you’re still stuck with dreary below-zero weather, though, you’ll likely appreciate some reading recommendations more than those who can’t wait to get outside. Anyway, I hope there’ll be something for everybody again and now excuse me because: I can’t wait to get outside 😀 !

Happy Sunday!
