  1. Hey Emily! So I really love reading your blog and chatting with you about faith and feminism and books. I’m thinking about doing a series and trying to collaborate with some other women bloggers. I’d love to work with you! Could I possibly have an email address for you so I can tell you more about my idea? Or you can just email me at arielkprice@gmail.com. Thanks!

  2. Hi Emily, I am a brand new blogger, and your blog has made me thankful that I chose WordPress as a place to begin. You may even be my mentor blogger. I also love to read, and I see that you enjoy John Steinbeck. Have you read Steinbeck’s The Acts of King Arthur and His Noble Nights. I loved the book, but the ending made me want to throw it across the room (of course I would not do that to a beloved book). I didn’t want it to end. My understanding is that Steinbeck died before he finished it. His wife (I think) gave it to his publisher.

    Love your blog

    1. Thank you so much! I do love Steinbeck, but I have not read that particular book. I bet it would’ve been better in the end if he had been able to finish it. I had a colleague who once threw The House of Mirth across the room. I liked it, however, and did not feel the need to abuse it! 😉 Glad you are here. I hope your blogging goes well.
