#FridayReads: What Winter Storm? Edition

tinkers header
What does it mean to be? It's a question often reserved for freshman year philosophy courses and late night bull sessions, but this week it also happened to be deeply intwined in the books we were reading. These books, in totally different ways, explore what makes you different from (or the same as) other people, why some people are chosen (or not), and what it means to be a live (and, of course, die). Heady stuff, but with half the country buried in snow, you might find yourself with plenty of time this weekend for contemplation.

#FridayReads: Anti-Valentine’s Day Edition

Tomorrow is Valentine's Day, as you probably know whether you'd like to or not. It's not that we have anything against people celebrating their relationships on a particular day per se, but sometimes it's valuable to cut against the grain a little. So this weekend, you can find our editors enjoying these books about doomed romances, hopelessly awkward OKCupid prowling, and solo travel. We hope our partners don't mind.

We've been on something of a tear lately, adding great new books left and right (including comics and graphic novels!).

Over the last few weeks, we've added titles from some of our all-time favorite small and independent publishers, including New York Review Books, McSweeney'sCounterpointTin House Books, and Columbia University Press.

Unlimited comics, now on Scribd

ComicsBlogTriFrame
That's right. We've just added more than ten thousand comics and graphic novels to our library, including titles from Marvel, IDW/Top Shelf, Valiant, Boom! Studios, Dynamite, Archie, and more. For the first time, characters as diverse as Spider-Man, My Little Pony, X-O Manowar, Transformers, and Archie are all hanging out in the same place. It's kinda like having an entire comic convention in your pocket, only way cheaper and without the smelly convention center.

#FridayReads: It’s February Edition

headerblogflower
Another week, another mix of #FridayReads from our editors. This week we found ourselves taken in by histories both real and fictional. We were pleased to revisit old characters and old family stories in a new light. At the same time, we looked ahead to spring. (And with it, gardening! And also hockey.) In short, it was a pretty good week.
