I’M SORRY,” “I’m so sorry,” “Oh geez, sorry!” I am an overapologizer. It’s a reflex, like stepping back from a hot stove or oohing at fireworks. “I’m sorry” is automatic when I bump into someone on New York City’s crowded streets and even when someone hurtles into me. Or when I walk into a conference room I’ve booked and say to the people overstaying their time: “Sorry, I believe I have this booked.” I realize these “sorries” undermine my ability to come across as confident and capable. My mom autoapologized a lot, and now I hear my young daughter do it too. That bums me out. But I’m working on it. Sometimes I can stifle it, but it’s a constant struggle. So I give myself credit when I make progress, like…

what’s something you used to feel self-conscious about but don’t anymore?

Whether someone likes me. It only took 60 years! @M.NORM0709 #RSLOVE “TRY A DUTCH OVEN TO MAKE BAKERY-STYLE BREAD IN YOUR HOME!” @SWEETCAYENNE5 Talking too much. Now I just talk to everyone, and maybe I can brighten their day. LIZ METTILLE, TOPEKA, KANSAS My introversion. I was always told I was too quiet, and I thought it was wrong that I would rather stay home by myself. Now I appreciate my listening skills and relish the times I can be alone to recharge. @JANEOTT My age. I’m a teacher and love telling my students I’m half a century old!

Great for Book Club Magazine editor Justine is surprised when she bumps into her childhood crush, Nick. While they’re catching up, he reveals his obsession with horoscopes—specifically the ones in her publication. When Justine begins editing the astrology column, she gets a little creative with her rewrites to sway Nick into realizing they’re meant for each other. Minnie Darke’s Star-Crossed is a charming love story with deeper points about belief and consequences. Caregiver Memoir In Ladysitting, Lorene Cary recounts her grandmother’s rich life—one that spanned a century, from the Great Migration to the election of the first black president—and her final year, at age 100, when she moved in with Cary. The author movingly portrays what it’s like caring for a loved one—bureaucratic frustrations, angry outbursts, and all—and reckons with her grandmother’s contradictions. Fantastical…
