In a time of worldwide pandemic, economic hardship and in recognition of the depths of racism in the country, there has been a lot of discussion at the Shelf about how to celebrate our 15th anniversary. But, in moments of strife, rituals help. We've spoken with many of our friends and colleagues in our bookverse over the past few months, and when asked what keeps them together, it is often ritualistic: a morning walk regardless of weather, a weekly Zoom/drink date, a quiet moment of meditation, a certain daily time to read an actual book. So, we proceed with the celebration below, with a look back to our favorite articles, books, and our telling numbers. We hope you enjoy it! Note that after the next article, there's a comment button that lets you send us birthday wishes. We love reading them, so we hope you do!
