The Happy Mediavore


Better than Before by Gretchen Rubin - I’m a Questioner! And a lark, and a finisher...
This Journal Belongs to Ratchet by Nancy J. Cavanaugh - adorable, heartwarming, genuine. This book is so creative, too. Each entry in Ratchet’s creative writing journal follows a different format: persuasive, screenplay, concrete poem.
How She Does It by Anne Bogel - Like many, I love anecdotes, and this ebook is packed with them; there are so many examples of how many tweaked their work to make it fit their season of life.
The One by Kiera Cass - Teen books are my favorite. This is the last in a trilogy about teen girls vying for a prince, Bachelor-style. It takes place, of course, in a future dystopian society. Somehow this series manages to be serious and frothy at the same time.
The Art of Social Media by Guy Kawasaki and Peg Fitzpatrick


Edge of Eternity by Ken Follett; read by John Lee - The third book in the Century trilogy. The first two were excellent; I found this one to be less so. The pacing is very uneven to me and it seems as though he could have actually written a fourth book. There is a just a massive amount of time covered in this one as compared to the first two novels in the saga.
Serial podcast - We binge-listened to this one over Easter travels. Addictive.
Rough Draft podcast by Demian Farnworth of Copyblogger - Lots of great information for web writers here, in convenient audio format!
The Book of Mormon featuring the Original Broadway Cast - Husband took me to see this musical for my birthday. On the drive home, I was happy to find this album in my Amazon Prime Music app. Very catchy songs here.


The Americans, Season One - We’ve watched the first two episodes so far. I’m enjoying it.
Once Upon a Time, Season Two
House of Cards, Season Three - finished!
This vegetable gardening course from Craftsy
The Chef’s Table - A new Netflix docuseries following a different chef in each episode. Just watched Episode 2 featuring Dan Barber and I wanted to cry. Blue Hill Farm is so beautiful, as is Dan's cause in making food and farming healthy and real again.
