  • Our world is filled with quintessential pairings. Bacon and eggs. Bert and Ernie. Peanut butter and jelly. We seek out wine pairings to complement our meals; we set up our friends because they’re sure to be the perfect pair. But here at Quirk Books, we spend our time coming up with book pairings. And today -- because we’re so wonderful and generous -- we’re sharing those pairings with you.

    Behind ever scowl, dark clothes and unhappy look lies a brooding bad boy. These dark and troubled youths with will steal your girl and even your own heart. Because who doesn’t love a brooding bad boy?

  • Is there a partner more perfect, more amiable than a book lover? As a book lover, I can say with absolutely no bias whatsoever, no, there is not. Now and then folks may speak to “problems” with being in the company of book lovers, and to that I say, are these problems? Or do they just not appreciate everything we book lovers bring to the world? In the interest of education, here is a selection of book lover qualities that are in no way, shape, or form, a problem to anyone.

  • Next weekend, unwind with a nice cold pint and your favorite book in hand. (Extra points if you start off the last summer month with a particularly hoppy flavor.) But what if your favorite beers weren’t just an accompaniment to your favorite books, but actually a key part of them? We’ve re-imagined some of the most famous books of the past few decades with some delicious barley beverages front and center so that you can really get into the spirit of books and beer this weekend.

    Friendships come in all shapes and sizes. This is especially true in the literature world, where the most unlikely relationships can bloom. Stephen King and George R. R. Martin are a good case in point (seen above).

  • While we’ll take any excuse to introduce our friends to Tracy K. Smith, the incredible poet behind Life on Mars and our irreplaceable Poet Laureate, or Sylvia Plath, whose newly collected letters are phenomenally exciting because they’re her first piece of published writing untouched by her abuser and ex-husband Ted Hughes, today we’re taking our poetry love in a different – and digital – direction. So, take out your phones, open Instagram, and start reading.
