NYPL #FridayReads: The Looking Spiffy Edition December 1, 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...

 The books that famous writers are thankful for and 100 classic books translated into English. Plus, we went around the world in over eighty children's books. This is how new words become mainstream. Sometimes on a cold day, all we want to do is stream classic movies—for free! Here's the skinny on Captain America, ICYMI. "We still hope for a happy ending," Annie Proulx said during her National Book Awards speech. Keep your books looking spiffy the rare book expert way.  Here are twelve ways to get more out of the Library. That's it; we're moving to one of these "book towns."

No need to get up! Join our librarians from the home, office, playground—wherever you have internet access—for book recs on Twitter by following our handle @NYPLrecommends from 10 AM to 11 AM every Friday. Or, you can check NYPL Recommends any day of the week for more suggestions. 



It's showtime!

We've got a brand new show! Watch on Facebook Live on Fridays at noon. You can ask Gwen and Lynn to recommend your next read and hear what other patrons are loving lately too.
