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 best-selling and acclaimed authors speak to the ever-increasing demands on our time, especially during the quarantine, in a unique, literary way.
