As we settle in to our social distanced lives, we've been relying heavily on Zoom happy hours, Netflix watch parties, and at-home workouts to keep us occupied. But one of our favorite ways to pass the time is cracking open those books we've been meaning to read for ages.
We asked the teams of MyDomaine and The Spruce what they've been reading during this period of self isolation. And whether you're looking for a new novel to get lost in, or a hefty non-fiction read, we've got the perfect thing to keep you occupied for the rest of your quarantine and beyond.
The World of Ice & Fire
"My nerdy self is excited to finally spend some time reading The World of Ice & Fire. This came out a while ago, but since it is a coffee table book, I haven't gotten very far with it (I get most of my reading done on my commute). I hope it is the antidote to season 8." — Allison Bean, editorial director
Talking to Strangers
"I've been meaning to listen to the audiobook version of Malcolm Gladwell's Talking to Strangers for a long time, so that audio experience is first on my pandemic list." — Mélanie Berliet
All That You Leave Behind
"I'm currently going through a memoir phase, and I'm planning on diving into Erin Lee Car's All That You Leave Behind next. I've heard it's very moving, so it's a great pick to read while I'm at home and won't get caught crying in public." — Karli Bendlin, newsletter editor
