    There are few things that are more dreaded than doing taxes—and with good reason! Taxes have a reputation for being complicated, time-consuming, and of course, difficult to get right. There’s always a fear that something is missing, that you won’t get the return you should, or (far worse) that you will make the kind of mistake that has the government releasing the hounds.

    However, this year offers a surprise reprieve from springtime tax day, as the COVID-19 pandemic has prompted the IRS to announce that the tax deadline has been pushed. This is a welcome measure to help people affected by the global pandemic, but it’s also left people wondering just what to do with what would have been Tax Day. Thankfully, we’ve got some isolation-friendly (and bookworm-friendly) ideas for you, so you can celebrate having another couple of months to enjoy before knuckling down to that dreaded task.

    We hope Saoirse Ronan spent her birthday safely quarantined in her home, reading a good book. But social distancing can’t stop us from dreaming up a delicious list of literary roles that we would absolutely love to see her play.

    We’re all home practicing social distancing and self-isolation, so what better time to dig into the movies we completely missed out on last year? We’re so excited to finally see Parasite (we know, we know) which is now on Hulu as of April 8! And because we’re currently craving companion media to go with all the other media we’re consuming, we came up with a list of five novels about class conflict and social inequality to read after – and maybe even in anticipation of – Parasite.

    Being a pet parent isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. There’s tons of cuddling, petting and treat giving. Lots of long walks to the park or chasing the laser pointer. Actually, being a pet parent is pretty awesome! If you’re a proud pet parent, here are a few books we think you might enjoy reading, especially while you're home and spending that extra quality time with your furry BFF.

  • It's National Beer Day, and social distancing can't stop us from collectively cracking open a bottle of beer and drinking together, alone in our own homes. So grab your favorite beer and—wait a minute, something's not right. These beer bottles seem to have something...literary going on.

    Which bookish beer bottle label is your favorite? Let us know on Twitter @quirkbooks!

  • In this time of quarantine and social distancing, it can be easy to lose track of the day of the week – or the last time you called your best friend. Which is why we’re proposing a virtual hangout with purpose. A #Couchella, if you will – but way more literary. Throw a bookish party from the comfort (and safety) of your own home. Because we all know how wonderful it is to make an extrovert’s day.
