Anti-Heroes We Love to Hate (and Root for Anyway)

We relish a good villain, but you know what’s even better than a bad guy? An anti-hero.

To E-Read or Not to E-Read?

It’s the ultimate question, generating fierce debate in literary circles around the world. Every bookworm has uttered it at one point or another. In fact, we guarantee that this query has come out of your own mouth sometime in the last decade. Here it is. “Should I get an e-reader?”

The Perfect Summer Beach Reads

There’s nothing like sprawling out on a lounge chair by the ocean and cracking open a good book.

We’ve got a list of some of the best beach reads that will make any lake, pond, or puddle feel like a tropical paradise.
