Join award-winning podcaster Zibby Owens of Moms Don't Have Time to Read on a quarantine journey filled with food, exercise, sex, books, and more.

It’s impossible to ignore how life has changed since COVID-19 spread across the world. People from all over quarantined and did their best to keep on living during the pandemic.

Zibby Owens, host of the award-winning podcast Moms Don’t Have Time to Read Books and a mother of four herself, wanted to do something to help people carry on and to give them something to focus on other than the horrors of their news feeds. So she launched an online magazine called We Found Time. Authors who had been on her podcast wrote original, brilliant essays for busy readers. Zibby organized these profound pieces into buckets of things moms don’t have time to do: eat, read, work out, breathe, and have sex. Now compiled as an anthology named Moms Don't Have Time To, these inspiring, beautiful, original essays by dozens of bestselling and acclaimed authors speak to the ever-increasing demands on a mother’s time, especially during the quarantine, in a unique, literary way.

Actress Evangeline Lilly writes about the importance and impact of film. Rene Denfeld, bestselling author of The Child Finder and The Butterfly Girlfocuses on her relationship with food after growing up homeless. Lea Carpenter, screenwriter and author of Eleven Days and Red, White, Blue, andSuzanne Falter, author, speaker, and host of the podcast "Self-Care for Extremely Busy Women," focus on loss. Chris Bohjalian, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Midwives and The Flight Attendant, and Gretchen Rubin, New York Times bestselling author of The Happiness Project, Happier at Home, The Four Tendencies, Better than Before and Outer Order Inner Calm and the host of award-winning podcast "Happier with Gretchen Rubin,” write about the importance of reading. Others write about working out, love and sex, eating, and more.

Join Zibby on her journey through the winding road of quarantine and perhaps you, too, will find time.
