Need some book-related bling for your jewelry box? Here’s a collection of some of the most creative and unique pieces on Etsy that celebrate literature: necklaces, bracelets, cufflinks, and rings that celebrate (or are made from) books.
It's summertime, and you all know what that means: more comic book movies than you can shake a Mjolnir at (that's Thor's hammer, for you normals). This summer, comic book fans will get the chance to see RED 2, The Wolverine, 300: Rise of an Empire, Kick-Ass 2, and 2 Guns.
Personally, I'm pretty excited to see some of these and... not so excited to see some of the others. Despite the fact that the comic book movie has become one of the most lucrative parts of the Hollywood machine, there are many great comics which will never make it to the big screen—but still deserve the Hollywood treatment. Big producers looking for future summer goldmines, take note! Here are my suggestions.
Once apple picking season starts, you’ll want to go off to the orchards to fill the cart with all the fresh fruit you can find. When you get back home, get work on one of the easiest baking projects ever, and whip up these crisp wonton cups that cradle sweet, cinnamon laced apple cubes.
I promise you’ll fall in love with this fall dessert. Serve it alongside a bowl of ice cream, and it’ll be quite a treat.
I'm sure many of you went to see Zack Snyder's Superman reboot Man of Steel and likely walked away pretty impressed, especially if you are not a regular reader of Superman comics. That's because it is one of those rare comic book movies made for those of you who maybe haven't read or even held a comic in more than a few years.
And now that you've seen Man of Steel, you are probably thinking you should check out some of those Superman comics you saw at the book store. Maybe see if they are as good as the movie.
But you get one look at the shelf and don't even know where to start. You don't want to come into the middle of a storyline and you want to make sure you know what's going on from page one. Plus you want something that will remind you of what made Man of Steel so much fun and a blast to see in the first place.
Thankfully, Superman has a number of collections and graphic novels that are perfect for a new or lapsed fan like yourself. Each one listed below is not only an enjoyable page turner, but they are also all easy jumping on points that don't require any previous Superman knowledge to enjoy.

This month, a bunch of Worst-Case Scenario eBooks have been added to the Apple iBookstore's Laugh Out Loud Books promotion (note, that link will open your iTunes). The books are in good company, hanging out with the two of my favorite humor books, All My Friends Are Dead and Go the F*ck to Sleep.
