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 going 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 themes inspired by five 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 beautiful, original essays by dozens of bestselling and acclaimed authors speak to the ever-increasing demands on our time, especially during the quarantine, in a unique, literary way.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Zibby’s essay collection is just like her: warm, inclusive, literary, at times funny, and always refreshingly real. Every piece in here will make you think, shift your perspective, and touch your soul.”  Lori Gottlieb, New York Times bestselling author
“Zibby Owens offers a peppy, honest reading of her edited collection of essays about contemporary moms and their attempts to survive the COVID-19 pandemic. She is earnest in her delivery of these essays, which are divided into five key areas that often fall by the wayside for a busy mother. These include: eating, reading, working out, breathing, and having sex. Owens energetically delivers the 60+ offerings, written by well-known authors, in a witty and engaging style sure to draw in listeners…Owens comes across as personable and funny, making this a title many will relate to.” AudioFile
