We Want To Go To There: Belgium’s Open Air Library

Artist Massimo Bartolini created this beautiful open air library in Ghent, Belgium, stocked with secondhand books visitors can browse, borrow, or buy as part of the TRACK art festival.

10 Memoirs That Will Make You Feel Better About Your Life

One of my favorite genres is what I like to call the “Hey, my life’s not actually that bad!” memoir, in which the author recounts the true(ish) story of their severe drug addiction, homelessness, crazy affairs, horrifically bad parents, accidental murder, or some combination of all of the above. Whatever the content matter, these books have one thing in common: by the end, I feel like my life is going pretty well in comparison. In honor of Rad Reads Week, I’ve compiled a list of 10 memoirs that will help you appreciate your life for a variety of different reasons. Click through to check ‘em out…

Venn Diagram: Read The Book Or See The Movie?

Hollywood has gotten lazy, so these days, movie studios either remake movies, produce sequels to blockbusters, or adapt popular books into movies. Of the latter, many of these films don’t do justice to the original material, but a special, rare few actually improve upon the book and the story translates better to the screen. (There is a whole other category of books that were terrible and should not have been turned into movies, but that’s another subject and chart entirely.) So, should you see the movie or read the book? Here’s a short, fairly random list to refer to.

Whatever the reason, there often comes a time in our lives when reading takes a back seat to, you know, everything else. Maybe your crazy schedule leaves you no time to go to the library, let alone relax with a good book. Maybe Twitter has ruined your ability to read anything longer than 140 characters. Maybe you were so traumatized by the endless assigned readings in college that you can’t remember what it’s like to read for fun (seriously, I didn’t voluntarily pick up a book for at least a year after graduation). We’re celebrating Rad Reads Week here at The Frisky, which just happens to be the perfect time to rediscover the magic of a good book. Wondering how to get back in the habit? Check out our 10 tips, after the jump! Keep reading »
