The re­ac­tion to Leesa Cross-Smith’s es­say “Some Room to Breathe: In Praise of Quiet Books” (May/June 2018) from some of our 207,000 Twit­ter fol­low­ers was any­thing but quiet. One reader tweeted that it was “the per­fect es­say to read on a rainy spring day.” An­other ex­pressed grat­i­tude: “Thanks for cham­pi­oning the quiet sto­ries.”

Our top post on In­sta­gram in April fea­tured a quote from Michele Fil­gate’s in­ter­view with Les­lie Jami­son, “The In­fi­nite World” (May/June 2018), in which the au­thor of The Re­cov­er­ing said, “One of the hard things about writ­ing is that you have to show up, but you don’t know what you’re show­ing up for.” One of our nearly four thou­sand fol­low­ers replied, “I thought it was just me.”
