  • Editor's Note: We're bringing back one of our most loved posts because hey, time travel is always a relevant topic of discussion. Originally published 11/30/12.

  • Home to some of the world’s most magnificent natural arboretums, fantasy novels are sure to surprise and delight even the most intrepid traveler. Join us as we take you on an unbelievable journey through literary woods and forests. Be sure to pack a bottle of water, a map, and your imagination.  

  • In an alternate universe where the nine members of Tolkein’s Fellowship of the Ring did not assemble for the purposes of deciding what to do with an unfathomably evil Ring of Power, and instead came together solely to partake in holiday merriment, they might have opted to participate in a White Elephant gift exchange. Or, as would be more accurate in Middle Earth, a White Oliphaunt. View their results here.

  • If you really want to know about the best places to go in New York, I will tell you about them. They are the places where you will see the least amount of phonies. You know, the ones in plaid or expensive suits. I really hate those people. As much as I hate the movies.

  • Since Nintendo has released the NES Classic Edition console, we're bringing back another classic. This season, give the gift of retro reading...with actual books! Sure, tablets are great. They offer the ability to carry hundreds of books in one compact device. And while we love and support e-books, we're jumping at the chance to get back to original books—in print format!

  • All the holiday shopping is done and gifts are under the tree. Not a stray piece of wrapping paper or bow out of place. Everything is just perfect. Oh no. We forgot about Mary. And Marge. And Myrtle and Mayella. Now riddle us this, dear reader. Why are all the forgotten characters of literature so hard to shop for? And why do all their names begin with the letter M?
