    As spring falls away and the first hints of summer begin to shine their way through the clouds, it is important to note that this summer will be different than others. The activities which normally whiled away the hours—like going to conventions, beaches, and amusement parks—are all shut down due to the current Covid-19 situation. Vacations have been canceled, and most people will be spending a lot more time indoors until the world can safely open up again. Still, that doesn’t mean you can’t go to some of the most amazing places in your mind, and what better time to start reading one of those long, epic, and winding tales to fill both your mind and those waking hours? With that in mind, Quirk has a list of especially long standalone novels and even longer series for you to consider reading with links to get them into your hands.

    Ever watch a movie or show and come across a character that just screams your dad? Maybe your father figure is an Uncle Phil type (strict, but encouraging and loving). Maybe he’s more like the Mad Hatter (an avid tea drinker with curious inclinations).

    No matter the character your father figure reminds you of, for this Father's Day, we're recommending books based off of the pop figure your dad most resembles.
