What are you up to this weekend? I’m looking for a new book. Do you have any recommendations? I just finished Writers & Lovers, which was smart, wise and sexy. Hope you have a good one — stay safe — and here are a few fun links from around the web…

We’ve been watching The Last Dance series about Michael Jordan, and I’m hooked. (And before this I didn’t even care about basketball!)

The four-second workout.

Pretty bookcases.

Everlane is having a choose-what-you-pay sale. (I have this shirt and love it.)

Here’s how time works now, haha.

We made this salmon and the whole family enjoyed it.

Readers have asked us where to find nice-looking masks, and I like the ones from Heather Taylor Home and Camp.

Why I don’t feel safe wearing face masks.”

Life upgrade: Have a candle-lit dinner every night. (Agreed.)

Hamilton will stream on Disney+ in July!

Plus, three reader comments:

Says Erin on how to be friendly while wearing a mask: “This mask thing is REALLY really hard on the deaf community. Many of us feel completely lost. I have no idea if anyone is saying anything to me. I’m working with a volunteer organization that is designing clear masks for the community, but the reality is, it’s not us that needs to wear it, it’s the general public. Though I love the idea, I also feel like it’s going to be a massive uphill battle.”

Says HM on how to support a new mom from far away: “My boss sent my older child (who was three at the time) a disposable camera and a photo album when our second was born. The photos she took are the most hilarious little time capsule.”

Says Chantal on what do you cook on a first date: “When I was 19, I was having a boy over for dinner for the first time. It was our third date. I microwaved salmon in a steam bag and put it in a pan in the oven before he came over. I also microwaved rice and took it out of the Uncle Ben’s bag and put it in a pot minutes before he arrived. I hid the evidence at the very bottom of my garbage can. He was SO impressed and talked about it for weeks. Never told him that everything was nuked.”
