  • Wax on, wax off!

    The Karate Kid is coming back to the big screen on March 31 and April 2, 2019! This event includes a special introduction and a sneak peek of Cobra Kai Season 2. Get tickets here!

  • It’s German chemist Robert Wilhelm Eberhard von Bunsen’s 207th birthday on March 31—aka National Bunsen Burner Day. To commemorate the birth of the man who invented that instrumental piece of laboratory equipment, we’re highlighting some of our favorite scientists from Sam Maggs’ Wonder Women – women who broke down barriers, made significant contributions to the field, and, in a couple of cases, didn’t even get credited for their work. Today is for them.

  • If you were a fan of Geekerella, you’re going to love Ashley Poston’s latest contemporary fairy tale: The Princess and the Fangirl. Imogen Lovelace is a teenager with one mission: to save her favorite Starfield character, Princess Amara. She’s got the ExcelsiCon map memorized, the #SaveAmara hashtag trending, and so much merch to give away. But there’s one problem: Jessica Stone, the actress playing the role, wants nothing to do with the campaign. In fact, she’d rather her character remain dead. (Yikes!) This modern twist on The Prince and the Pauper got us thinking about our favorite swaps in pop culture -- and the hijinks that have ensued.

  • It’s not hard to fall in love with your local independent bookstore. From the moment you walk in, you’re greeted with an alluring brick floor or a bookstore cat or every book you’ve ever loved on display at the front of the store. It’s a book lover’s dream. And while we’re guilty of the infinite browse because the prices are higher than we thought they’d be (curse you, Amazon!), today we’re embracing that full price lifestyle – with the promise to honor and support our indies for all time. Small businesses keep our communities vibrant, y’all. Let’s treat them right.

  • 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.
