It’s no secret that Quirk Books has a crush on John Cho. He’s both incredibly gorgeous and supremely talented and if we had our way he’d be starring in every movie out there. #StarringJohnCho
This week, we’re looking at the many literary roles on his resume – plus a couple we’d like to pitch to his agent.

We don’t know about you, but for the last four seasons, Orange is the New Black has doubled as both excellent television and an extension of our TBR. Each episode is packed with literary references and character-specific reading material. Season five is out now and we're loving it. If you haven't watched the newest season yet (or even if you have), we’re reliving our favorite books of the series – revealing our secret wish to become best friends with the Orange is the New Black writers’ room.

Ah, Father’s Day...that second-fiddle after-thought of the greeting card holidays. According to a prominent bank, America spends 40% more money on Mother’s Day. That’s an average of $57 dollars less on Dad than on Mom, and the gap has been widening since 2003.
Maybe a stroll through grades for the good, bad and downright deadly of literary dads will give you some perspective this Father’s Day. Maybe even inspire you to ditch the necktie and get Dad something that says, “I love you just as much as I love Mom.”

Once upon a time, in a land far, far away – or not that far, really, depending on where you live – there lived four men named Chris. All were fair of skin and blessed with great charm, and together they ruled their Town of Tinsel with a benevolent hand (and well-muscled arms), and were greatly adored by all who beheld them.
