  • We really really love Keira Knightley. (Is that totally uncool? We don’t care.) And it seems like she loves us too – or at least the things we stand for. Throughout her long and illustrious career, she’s shown a fervent dedication to all things literary, playing some of our favorite fictional characters – and one wronged author! And today we’re looking back on that career. (And forward to the roles ahead.) Happy birthday, Kiera Knightly. We hope your day is filled with hours and hours of reading. Because you deserve it.

  • The fifth and final season of Jane the Virgin premieres this week and we are on the edge of our seats. (Y’all! You can’t leave us with a cliffhanger like that and then not come back until mid-season. That’s just not fair.) As fans of the show know, Jane is an avid reader (and writer!) who always has something incredible to read. You can tell it’s a writers room full of book worms. (We see you, fellow nerds.) So, without further ado, here are some of our favorite literary moments of the series.

  • There is an age-old argument amongst readers: book or movie? Which version was better? So we started to wonder, what if the age-old argument was book or video game? In order to tackle the question, we made a list of books that would make epic video games.

  • Big news! There's a musical component to the graphic novel Giraffes on Horseback Salad: Salvador Dali, the Marx Brothers, and the Strangest Movie Never Made: a soundtrack for the book!

    While the album will not officially come out until about a month after Giraffes on Horseback Salad goes on sale, author Josh Frank wanted to share the musical book experience earlier by offering three songs you can listen to online starting March 19, 2019. And here's the coolest part: these songs are "sung" in Giraffes on Horseback Salad, so you can pair these up while reading the graphic novel. Ready for things to get surreal?

  • We all need to get away sometimes. Pack an overnight bag and leave town for little R&R. But what if you could book a vacation at your dream Airbnb, real or fictional? We made a few literary listings we’d love to see available.

  • It’s almost the Ides of March, that spooky not-quite-Spring time when everything feels off kilter and you’re constantly looking over your shoulder. (E tu, Brute?) To celebrate this off-kilter and decidedly un-celebratory holiday, we’re taking a look at some of our favorite novelists – and wondering why they haven’t written an adaptation of Julius Caesar.

    We’re joking, of course. But Julius Caesar is pretty much never adapted. And in a sea of Romeos and Juliets, Violas and Sebastians, it’s fun to imagine a world where Marc Antony is getting some contemporary love. So happy Ides of March – or beware! Either way, we’ll be daydreaming about the adaptation potential.
