Reading:

Better than Before by Gretchen Rubin - I’m a Questioner! And a lark, and a finisher...
This Journal Belongs to Ratchet by Nancy J. Cavanaugh - adorable, heartwarming, genuine. This book is so creative, too. Each entry in Ratchet’s creative writing journal follows a different format: persuasive, screenplay, concrete poem.
How She Does It by Anne Bogel - Like many, I love anecdotes, and this ebook is packed with them; there are so many examples of how many tweaked their work to make it fit their season of life.
The One by Kiera Cass - Teen books are my favorite. This is the last in a trilogy about teen girls vying for a prince, Bachelor-style. It takes place, of course, in a future dystopian society. Somehow this series manages to be serious and frothy at the same time.
The Art of Social Media by Guy Kawasaki and Peg Fitzpatrick

Listening:

Edge of Eternity by Ken Follett; read by John Lee - The third book in the Century trilogy. The first two were excellent; I found this one to be less so. The pacing is very uneven to me and it seems as though he could have actually written a fourth book. There is a just a massive amount of time covered in this one as compared to the first two novels in the saga.
Serial podcast - We binge-listened to this one over Easter travels. Addictive.
Rough Draft podcast by Demian Farnworth of Copyblogger - Lots of great information for web writers here, in convenient audio format!
The Book of Mormon featuring the Original Broadway Cast - Husband took me to see this musical for my birthday. On the drive home, I was happy to find this album in my Amazon Prime Music app. Very catchy songs here.

Watching:

The Americans, Season One - We’ve watched the first two episodes so far. I’m enjoying it.
Once Upon a Time, Season Two
House of Cards, Season Three - finished!
This vegetable gardening course from Craftsy
The Chef’s Table - A new Netflix docuseries following a different chef in each episode. Just watched Episode 2 featuring Dan Barber and I wanted to cry. Blue Hill Farm is so beautiful, as is Dan's cause in making food and farming healthy and real again.
