You don't need us to tell you that screen time before bedtime isn't great for your stress, mood, or sleep quality. But this year, we're doing something about it. 

We're taking the #readtosleep pledge to spend a few minutes before bed reading instead of scrolling. If you're feeling the eye strain and energy drain that comes from SBB (scrolling before bed 😂), might we suggest you take the pledge too? 

It comes with tips for getting better sleep and a community that's in on this movement along with you. Plus, you can enter to win a Parachute bedding set and 25 books of your choice as the cherry on top. 🍒

See you Friday,
The GNI Team

📚Our recently read list: 

❤️ Know My Name by Chanel Miller
"I read Know My Name toward the end of 2019 and was absolutely blown away. There's so much power, pain, and humanity in this book, written by Chanel Miller (formerly known as "Emily Doe") in the years following her assault on Stanford's campus. It's one of the most beautifully written books I've read in recent memory." - Alisha, Founder at GNI

🥘 Nothing Fancy by Alison Roman 
"Whoever said you can't read cookbooks before bed doesn't know what they're missing. I find myself laughing out loud and inspired to cook every time I take a moment (outside the kitchen!) to actually READ Alison Roman's manifesto on the modern not-so-dinner party." - Olivia Rogine, Director of Member Experience 

👶 Such a Fun Age by Kiley Reid 
"I recently read Kiley Reid's debut novel and found it both enjoyable and necessary. It tackles matters of race, power, and systemic oppression with agility, wit, and tongue-in-cheek intention. I would recommend it for anyone that loves the fast pace of fictional dialog within the framework of a could-be-real story." - Tyler, Director of Content

🌿 Trick Mirror by Jia Tolentino 
"This was one of our book club picks last year and I can't stop thinking about it as it applies to my daily life. It provides smart commentary on what we should be questioning about consumerism and the world around us. If you enjoy cultural critiques and incredible writing, Jia Tolentino's first book is for you." - Katrina, Membership + Partnerships Associate

👫 Normal People by Sally Rooney
"Normal People is one of my favorite reads because it's such a realistic love story. In a relationship, not everything goes right and not everything stays the same as time moves. I developed such a soft spot for the characters as they went to college and tried to navigate their love as they grew into their lives and faced new hardships. It was one of those romance books that melts your heart but hands you the truth at the same time." - Jordan, Growth and Marketing Intern

 
📚 Our to-read list: 

👀 The Testaments by Margaret Atwood
"I'm a big Handmaid's Tale fan so it feels like it's time to take on The Testaments next. Because of the heavy nature of these books, I always make sure to read them in between some lighter books. Maybe because it's the thick of winter, but I'm really craving something a little darker and more thought-provoking right now, which is how I know it's TIME." - Olivia

👩‍🍳 Where Cooking Begins by Carla Lalli Music
"Okay, so I have to admit I've taken a peek at this one on a few occasions already, but now I'm taking it off the kitchen shelf and into my before-bed routine. Carla Lalli Music (you know her from the Bon Appétit Test Kitchen) is such a wealth of knowledge so I want to take the time to really internalize what she's saying about the basics of cooking here." - Katrina

💔 Fleishman is in Trouble by Taffy Brodesser-Akner
"I've been wanting to read this book for a good amount of time now, and the fact that it made the longlist in fiction for the National Book Award last year only further convinced me that it's a must-read. I've loved Taffy Brodesser-Akner's writing in the New York Times for so long, and I'm excited to see how it translates in this novel about a couple in the face of incredible challenges and big decisions about their future together." - Alisha 

🌻 Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid
"Daisy Jones & The Six is hands down the book that the most of my friends have recommended to me over the past year. I'm a fiction kind of gal, and this 1970s-based, music-filled, teenage coming-of-age story is exactly what I need before bed in the coming weeks." - Jordan

😴 How to Do Nothing by Jenny Odell 
"This one just seems on-brand, no? 😂 I've had so many good discussions with friends lately about the attention economy, burnout, hustle culture, and the pressure we feel to always be productive and on the GO. I've had to ask myself if that's really what makes me happy in the last few years, so I'm diving into this one as I try to make sense of it all." - Tyler
