I haven’t written one of these in over a year. it’s high time I slipped one in. When I first started following blogs, I was intrigued by S.J. Higgins’ “Sunday Post” on Brainfluff.

I wanted to do a Sunday update like hers, so when my mind went back to the 50s magazine, Saturday Evening Post, whose covers featured the paintings of Norman Rockwell, I decided to call my post “Sunday Evening Post.” It is an update on what you’ve read the past week, what you are continuing to read, and what you hope to read next. Here’s the “Saturday (Evening) Post” for Sunday, January 23, 2022.
