Launching All Across Earth: The Big Book of Mars

Science is endlessly fascinating. It’s the puzzle of the universe that great minds have been working on bit by bit since, well, since the first great mind. But this book started with another passion of mine: weird history.

Book Recs to Let Your Pride Flag Fly

We're closing out Pride Month with book recommendations to take you through the entire year. Even better? These book recs tie in with the Progress Pride Flag. Created by Daniel Quasar in 2018, this flag design incorporates the trans flag, as well as the black and brown stripes adopted by the City of Philadelphia in 2017. We are always growing and moving forward—something that these books and the Progress Pride Flag reflect. Enjoy these book recs, and Happy Pride!

Maybe it’s all this social distancing, but we’ve been daydreaming about outer space a lot lately. And while we’ve spent most of this quarantine sharing book recommendations with our friends and coworkers, we’ve spent very little time coming up with book recommendations for some of the planets in our solar system. Yes, you read that right.

Book Recs for the Animal Crossing: New Horizons NPCs

[source: blog post author Gabrielle Bujak]

Over the years, the Animal Crossing franchise has brought us comfort and joy via adorable animal villagers, ridiculous word play, and rewarding activities from catching that rare coelacanth to terra-forming the perfect waterfall. The irony of Blathers’s entomophobia makes us laugh, the way Timmy and Tommy echo one another makes us aww, and the surprising drama between Redd and Tom Nook build a world we can easily immerse ourselves in.

With the current state of the world, it only makes sense that we turn to the latest Animal Crossing: New Horizons to bring us that much needed sense of control and peace of mind, and because of their ability to delight and comfort us, it’s only fair we pay it forward…with personalized book recommendations! We’ve seen them pulling out books with their down time, and it’s about time they got that right. Here’s some reads they can add to their TBR piles.
