Beach season is nearly upon us, and Emily Giffin, author of Something Borrowed and Something Blue (among others) has a new novel out to sate your appetite for quick yet absorbing reads ideal for consuming while laying out in the sun — wearing SPF, of course. In Heart of the Matter, the lives of two very different women in the same Boston suburb become intertwined thanks to an awful accident. Tessa, a mother of two and the wife of a well-known surgeon, and Valerie, a single mother and attorney, take turns telling their sides of the saga, yielding a fascinating dual-perspective.

We all want to be good to Mother Earth, but figuring out how to help without rearranging your whole life can be tricky. So here’s our advice for becoming a little more green: Fold up a tote bag, and keep it in your purse at all times. Instead of letting cashiers put your purchases in a paper or plastic bag, take out your handy-dandy tote. No matter what you’re buying, whether it’s a new skirt or your weekly groceries, you don’t need another disposable bag to throw out (or, hopefully, recycle) once you get home. Just don’t forget to put your tote back in your handbag so you’ll always be prepared for your next purchase.
WIN THIS! We’re giving away five cotton tote bags to help you get your green on, but you have to work if you want one. In the comments, tell us your best advice for living more eco-friendly by 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, April 29. We’ll pick our favorite responses and announce the winners on Friday, April 30. You must live in the U.S. or Canada to win. Good luck!

Wouldn’t it be nice if right after you were born, someone handed you a how-to manual telling you everything you’d need to know to get through life? That way you’d understand, from the beginning, that there are many different types of love, failure’s OK, and certain kinds of men should be avoided at all costs. Tania Kindersley and Sarah Vine’s Backwards in High Heels: The Impossible Art of Being Female, a hardback with beautiful doodle-like illustrations, isn’t a self-help book, but it will get you thinking about love, careers, money, sex, and more, and the authors hand down pearls of wisdom for everything from doing your taxes without crying to avoiding late-night chocolate binges like helpful friends. [$15.61, Amazon]
