  1. I’m surprised you chose to link to Internet Archives given the controversy surrounding what they are doing. Quite a few authors have spoken out about how IA is essentially stealing from creatives. This is a time when our choices about what to support may matter more than ever. I would love to see people rally around their local libraries and independent bookstores instead.

  2. @krista, can you point me to one of the articles you’re referencing?

  3. I will be sending my nephews some Tattly tattoos! This may be a good time to repost your favorite small businesses (that sell puzzles? candles?). Have always loved your recommendations.

  4. Thanks for keepin’ this site alive. Crazy times. Much appreciated, Tina.

  5. @swissmiss I read about it first in the NYT here: (possible paywall though). There is also an article about it in Slate here:

  6. @swissmiss, I tried to link to the articles from the NYT and Slate here, but got a message saying it was a duplicate post (I’m sure I did something incorrectly).

  7. @Krista, I had to allow the comment because I had a link. Thank you for sharing.

  8. Maybe Tattly needs to create a Coronavirus symbol in a red circle with a line drawn through it! That should boost sales in these dystopic times. Be well, ALL, and stay inspired. Carrie

  9. My son built the Egg Wizard and it works so well. Thanks for the link!
