    Here at Quirk we’re pretty passionate about the oldies, whether they be pop culture favorites or canon works of the literary world. That’s why we have series like the Pop Classics (adorably illustrated picture books of cult films and TV series like The Karate Kid and Elf), the Quirk Classics (horror takes on literary masterpieces like the New York Times bestseller Pride and Prejudice and Zombies), and Ian Doescher’s Shakespearean takes on Back to the Future, Mean Girls, Clueless, and Star Wars.

    There’s something appealing with revisiting what writers and audiences have known to be compelling, but doing so through a new lens that revitalizes one’s love for the original. That’s why for National Old Stuff Day, we’re looking at some of the literary classics and their modern day retellings.

    It’s National Read Across America Day and even though we’re all stuck at home, books can take us anywhere – truly anywhere. Even though we can’t go on a cross-country road trip right now, our imaginations can still go on vacation. So come with us on a long drive from our HQ in Philadelphia all the way to sunny California. We’ll bring the snacks!

    Netflix’s wildly popular Bridgerton series has certainly swept fans of their feet! Adapted from Julia Quinn’s historical romance novels, each new season focuses on the courtships of the eight Bridgerton siblings. Can’t wait that long for more tantalizing family drama? Neither can we, that’s why we created this list of book series where siblings get their very own adventures!

    National Library Lovers’ Month may be coming to a close, but it’s never too late to swing by your local library, call for curbside pickup, or log into your Libby/cloudLibrary/hoopla apps and put those tax dollars to good use. Whether you love the feel of a newly applied dust jacket, the swipe of a free and immediate ebook, or the thrill of pressing the play button on your audiobook, libraries have something for everyone. Yes, many even carry video games, hotspots, museum passes, digital streaming services, play kits, and things you would never think of like baking pans.

    It’s no wonder so many people love libraries and it’s no surprise all of February is dedicated to those library lovers, but let’s take a moment to focus on some of the younger ones out there, the ones who dream of becoming a librarian and bettering a community, find solace hunched between the bookshelves and the pages of their latest pick, and pursue continual growth and improvement through expanding their world through books. Next time you check in at your library, see if they have one of these middle grade or young adult picks for a great story about the power of libraries.

    Superman & Lois premieres on The CW on Tuesday, February 23, and we’re excited to see where this contemporary story about some very familiar characters takes us. In fact, Superman & Lois has us daydreaming about a small screen future for some of our favorite superheroes, many of whom are part of the Marvel and DC universes we’ve come to know and love. It’s so exciting to be a comics reader right now – and we’re so excited to share some of our favorites with you!
