A Wes Anderson Book & Books in Wes Anderson Films

There are so many books I lust after, and would love to own, but really, where would they go? How often would I really open them?

Like coffee table books. They will only collect dust and seem cluttery (also, we don't own a coffee table). So instead, I pick through them at a library or a bookshop and then place them back on their shelves.

One of these books is The Wes Anderson Collection

What an exceptionally beautiful book.

Photographs, sketches, and interviews combine to create a really wonderful history of Anderson's life and work.

And because the world is a scary place filled with synchronicity I will never be able to understand, my friend Clare shared this link to a video featuring the books in Wes Anderson films with me while I was prepping this post.

Although don't you feel like there are more books in his films? Hmm...


My best friend sent me these Wes Anderson movie posters for my birthday and I still haven't decided where the perfect place to hang them is.

Orange Is the New Black, Season 3 in Books

Season 3 of Orange is the New Black has officially been binge-watched and I think I noticed more books in this season than the previous two.

It's a shame BooksOfOITNB.tumblr.com
didn't post for Season 3 but no fear because duh, Buzzfeed exists to fill all of our internet voids.

Episode 1 started off with a Harry Potter reference, which was wonderful. I knew I was going to be on board with Season 3 the second I heard the name "Cedric Diggory".

And this scene, with Big Boo and Pennsatucky was so, so good. And not just for the Freaknomics breakdown:

I'm going to pretend no books were burned in this season and just leave it at that. Because it was just too heartbreaking.

And the whole dynamic that took over when Suzanne started writing her own book was pretty interesting to watch unfold. I love how literary this show is.

You can see the rest of the list of books referenced in Season 3 of OITNB over on Buzzfeed.

And here's a bit on the books referenced in Seasons 1 & 2


Update: I'm still reading Moby Dick

Update 2: I'm moving this week for the last time in a long time

Summer Book BINGO

The Seattle Public Library system is pretty great.

Of course the Central Branch is beautifullllll, but I do love my little Greenwood branch. Especially the librarians who work there.

This summer Seattle Arts & Lectures and SPL have teamed up to create a Summer Book BINGO game for adults because kids shouldn't be the only ones with awesome summer reading challenges.

Once you've achieved a bingo, you can drop off your card at a library, in the mail or submit it via social media because hello, this is Seattle and we love the internet.

Plus, it's good looking.

Click here to learn more and download a card.

I'm really going to try to get at least one BINGO this summer. So far, I've been able to fill the "Checked out form the library" square. Wish me luck!

What are you reading this summer? I'm not quite sure what's on my list yet.


Buying new coloring books after work. Wish I had this one!

Did you see the Dalek on the LINK?
