  • Easter is coming up quicker than you think, and what's better thank a book in your Easter basket (besides candy)? We have some Quirk book recs for you — for everyone from your littlest book fans to teens and adults.

  • If you follow Reese Witherspoon on Instagram, you know she loves to read. In fact, “love” might be too mild a word to describe this voracious bookworm. She founded a production company so that she could amplify the voices of female novelists and non-fiction writers, turning their books into films. She has a social media-based book club, where she encourages her followers to read her new favorite books together. (Watch out, Oprah. Just kidding, they’re genuinely friends.) Today, in honor of Reese’s birthday, we’re celebrating our very favorite literary roles from her resume. These roles range from the silly to the serious, but one they have one thing in common: they’re all excellent books. And honestly, we expect nothing less.

  • Some personalities are bigger than life. In the case of media, there are actors like Sir. Ian McKellen, writers like Herman Melville and artists like Jack “King” Kirby. While these people are all bigger than big, they also have one thing in common: bigger than life monsters. Whether they fought them in films, wrote about them in novels or drew them in comics, each one of these men knows what it is like to be tied inextricably to an enormous beast. With Pacific Rim: Uprising just around the corner, we wanted to take a look at some of the biggest baddest monsters to ever grace pop culture.

  • Every schoolchild knows that Julius Caesar murdered on the Ides of March (that’s March 15th, for the less classically inclined). But how did the homicidal conspirators come to such a date for their bloody intentions? Surely the scheduling must have been difficult. In fact, it may have gone something like this…

  • The adventurer-archeologist is a common story trope, traipsing through jungles and lost tombs in sexy outfits, firing guns and flashing whips, with a quip for every occasion. They’re ready for anything—except, apparently, the actual business of archeology. Here’s a peek at what it would be like if these action heroes acted like their real-world counterparts.

  • Middle names are like a secret. Sometimes, they can even be embarrassing for the owner. On this list we reveal the hidden middle names of certain fictional characters in pop culture.
