NYPL #FridayReads: The Because of You Edition September 22, 2017


During the week, it can be tough to stay on top of everything. On Fridays, though, we suggest kicking back to catch up on all the delightful literary reading the internet has to offer. Don’t have the time to hunt for good reads? Never fear. We've rounded up the best bookish reading of the week for you.

We Read...

 "Because of you, I felt brave enough to take the next step." We challenge you to a Stephen King quiz! Check out these amazing 1910 Rosh Hashanah cards. Do you need your own Game of Thrones title? We've got you covered. Speaking of "covered," we loved perusing these 75 book covers for Toni Morrison's Beloved. Agatha Christie fans: can you remember which of these plots belongs to Marple and which to Poirot? Atul Gawande and Elizabeth Alexander grace the podcast! Hermione Granger is just one brave and brainy heroine we dig. We just keep repeating these quotes from Pride and Prejudice. It's easy to take a deep dive into the New York Times with a library card. Gay manga, J.D. Salinger, and more on The Librarian is In.
