  • The opening ceremonies have come and gone, but our televisions are full of winter sports and the fanatic fervor that accompanies them. You know us for our geeky reputation, but we’re no stranger to sports here at Quirk Books. To celebrate the winter games, we dove into Kid Athletes: True Tales of Childhood from Sports Legends, a personal favorite of ours by David Stabler with illustrations by Doogie Horner. The result is a geeky thought experiment – what if the kid athletes that Stabler showcases were winter athletes?

  • We all have one. The woman who knows we need a hug before we even say a word. The friend whose texts always seem to come at the right time. The confidant who always happens to be reading the same book as us. Our Galentine. And while we’re happy to shower this friend with gifts every February 13th, this year we’re stepping up our game with book recommendations for an incredible two-person book club – guaranteed. It’s a Galentine’s Day you’ll both remember for years to come.

  • Galentine’s Day is just around the corner and no amount of planning and scheming can make up for the fact that the holiday always sneaks up on us.

  • The Post is nominated for Best Picture for Oscars 2018! The movie, starring Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep, is based on a true story. It tells the incredible tale of a US Government cover up, the first female publisher of a major newspaper, and that paper (The Washington Post) as it attempts to take on the government for the right to reveal the truth. It’s a film that is perfectly positioned for the early days of 2018; an inspirational story, a female lead, a basis in truth, and a reminder of why the traditional media is so important in a time where the news comes more and more through social media and alternative channels. 

    The Post is also likely to reignite a spark of fascination with the newspaper industry—and the kind of hard-hitting reporting that inspires so many to become journalists. It may also interest people in the fictional stories of papers; those that appear in our favorite books and series, that have a little fun with the usual real-world format, that report some far more interesting news than we will ever see. We’re rounding up the best of them!

  • It’s not easy being a bridge troll to begin with, much less being one in the age of Google & Siri. How are you going to keep people off your bridge if they can just search-engine their way out of your best riddles? One troll may have found a solution.

  • Her illustrious career makes Oprah the sort of person who doesn't need an introduction, not really, so before we embarrass ourselves, we’ll just get right into it. In honor of Oprah’s birthday, we’re rolling out a selection of some of her boss literary roles in film. Which are your favorites?


Thanks for joining the Quirk fam! We can't wait to geek out with you.
