Ah, summer! If you’re looking for some excellent diversions, is the place to be.

And the livin’ is easy

—George Gershwin

The hot months will soon arrive in the Northern Hemisphere and if you’re like us, you’re planning a little time off from your regular routine. We’ve got some sites to inspire you to make new dishes, read new books, and even appreciate an age-old form of entertainment. No matter your passion, there’s an active community talking about your interests.

Simple Provisions

If you’re looking for easy and delicious meals, Amelia Crook, the blogger at Simple Provisions, has you covered. According to Amelia, “Food does not need to be fancy to be celebrated,” and we couldn’t agree more. We’re planning to celebrate her grilled kale and chickpea salad for starters and could easily lose ourselves in her culinary wonderland.


The Savvy Reader

The Circus Diaries

If you’re looking for a diversion for the whole family, consider the The Circus Diaries — a site dedicated to critical commentary on circus performance in the United Kingdom and beyond. Peruse great book reviews dedicated to circus performance, check out their show reviews, and be amazed by video snapshots of circus performances.
