  • DIY: Make a Snug-Read Wearable Blanket!

    If you’re ready to get your geeky hygge on, this cozy reading gear is for you. Wearable blankets have been very popular for the last few years, but a snug-read has all the benefits of a cozy blanket, a hooded sweatshirt, and a thick scarf without the hassle of trying to wear all three at once.

  • Belle Vs Jane: Which Princess Takes The Right Approach To Reading?

    This month, Disney’s live action adaptation of the animated classic, Beauty and the Beast, hit theaters – and bookworms everywhere are thrilled to see this library-loving princess brought to life. Belle has always been the Disney Princess for girls who love to read. After all, the very first time that we meet Belle, she’s headed to the bookstore (and to a scene that put ‘sliding on a rolling bookcase ladder’ on every bucket list). Later, the Beast shows us the way to every reader’s heart when he presents Belle with a stunning library. Books are everything to Belle – they are her form of escapism in the town and a mark of the Beast’s love.

    If you’re at all plugged into the video game world, you probably know that the next installment in the Mass Effect series, Mass Effect: Andromeda, is finally coming out today, March 21st.

In celebration of Mass Effect: Andromeda, here are some of our favorite references from games 1-3.

  • Harry Potter: How Would Hogwarts Celebrate St. Paddy’s Day?

    Brace yourselves for drunk strangers in novelty hats talking about their ‘Irish heritage’, because it’s St. Patrick’s Day once more! This Irish holiday has its roots in a saint who brought Christianity to Ireland (according to the tales), but it’s devolved into a great excuse for a mid-March party across the Western world.
