We’re well into summer now, which means it’s time to curl up on the beach (or porch…or grass…or what have you) with a good book. Might I recommend several?

Jenny Lawson is the brilliant and remarkable voice behind The Bloggess, which I’ve just discovered and am totally digging. She has over 200,000 followers, including the likes of Ellen DeGeneres, Wil Wheaton, and Neil Gaiman. She drops at least five f-bombs in almost every post…but, like, in a descriptive way.

Meredith Goldstein writes the Love Letters relationship advice column for the Boston Globe.

So, this is an anniversary for me, of sorts. My first-ever post for Miss A, one year ago, was an Oscar best-picture-nominees round-up. I can’t say I’ve had the same impressive record of moviegoing this year, mostly because there’s a few nominees I’m simply having trouble working up enthusiasm for.

“Suburgatory” (ABC, Wednesdays 8:30 ET)
