A good shelfie 😍📚
Tips on how to style your shelves from @eyeswoon, as featured in LIVE BEAUTIFUL! “Bookshelves should be like curiosity cabinets—filled with books and objects meaningful to you. Create vignettes by pairing various heights and shapes. Stack books in uneven parallel and perpendicular lines, clustered by subject and spine color. Orient each shelf differently from the one adjacent to it, and add the offbeat (like something found in nature that does not “belong”) to move your eye about the bookcase. If you get overwhelmed, step back and take a photo to assess it as an entire tableau.”

We’ve always thought that “bookworm” wasn’t an exciting enough term to describe something as rad as being a diehard book person, but it seems like the term is here to stay.

Happy (almost) Memorial Day weekend! While it might be different this year, that doesn't mean you can't make it special! Guelaguetza's famous horchata is a treat the whole family will enjoy.
It is a Oaxacan variation of agua fresca, with a splash of red cactus fruit syrup, toasted walnuts, and sliced ripe cantaloupe. Don't have prickly pears where you are? No problem! Strawberries work just fine.

The making of FIRE ON THE WATER.
This original graphic novel imagines the lives of blue-collar workers involved in the real-life Lake Erie tunnel disaster of 1916 in Cleveland. Author Scott MacGregor and illustrator Gary Dumm tell the intersecting stories of a brilliant African American inventor, Ben Beltran (based on the real-life Garrett Morgan, Sr.), desperate immigrants tunneling beneath Lake Erie, and corrupt overseers who risk countless lives for profit.
Inside Book Riot's LIT STITCH, you’ll find a number of badass, bookish cross-stitch patterns! 💪📚 Some of these are for bookmarks, others are for wall decor, and still others can take on a whole host of finished outcomes. What they have in common is their literary bent—the patterns speak to all manner of literary-minded book lovers, who are happy to display their nerdier sides. And what better way than through your own cross-stitch art to hang on your wall, prop on your desk, or even gift to friends and family. And most, if not all, are beginner friendly and can be completed in a few hours—instant stitchification! https://bit.ly/2yP7nWp

"I have always loved this photo. Her demeanor, cool and collected, looking far off in the distance. Her clothing. That subtle cross of her feet. The bottle of Coca-Cola in her hand. It’s hard to believe my mother, or any of our mothers, really, had lives before they had us. How strange..."—Valerie Mwazo, as featured in MOTHERS BEFORE: STORIES AND PORTRAITS OF OUR MOTHERS AS WE NEVER SAW THEM

On May 4, 1970, the Ohio National Guard gunned down unarmed college students protesting the Vietnam War at Kent State University. In a deadly barrage of 67 shots, 4 students were killed and 9 shot and wounded. It was the day America turned guns on its own children—a shocking event burned into our national memory.
A few days prior, 10-year-old Derf Backderf saw those same Guardsmen patrolling his nearby hometown, sent in by the governor to crush a trucker strike. Using the journalism skills he employed on MY FRIEND DAHMER and TRASHED, Backderf has conducted extensive interviews and research to explore the lives of these four young people and the events of those four days in May, when the country seemed on the brink of tearing apart. KENT STATE: FOUR DEAD IN OHIO is a moving and troubling story about the bitter price of dissent—as relevant today as it was in 1970.
