5 Seconds of Booknerd Entertainment (Plus a Reading Recipe)

Published May 2, 2012

Real fast — thanks everybody for the super sweet comments (both public and private) on last week’s 7 Things Books Can Teach Us About Life & Relationships post. It’s always refreshing to hear I’m not the only one who wishes I’d known some things at a younger age (and is still working away on them now that I’m older)! You guys rock. :0)

Now…onto this week!

Over the past month, there’ve been some awesome bookish curiosities popping up around the web. I thought I’d give you a 5 second rundown of a few that have caught my nerdy eye. Feel free to click the green links to see more.

1. Pics of the 25 Most Beautiful Public Libraries in the World (Flavorwire)

 These are all amazing.

2. Henry David Thoreau is Getting His Own Video Game (GalleyCat)

 Video game? This is just…yes. Random. And awesome. But mainly random.

3.  Jennifer Lawrence Looking Lovely (and non-Hunger Game-ish) in Lace (DustJacket)

This pretty pic has been around for a while, but it’s new to me, so…there’s that. ;0)

4. This “Burning Through Pages” Poster

Burning Through Pages fundraiser poster

The poster is part of an effort to raise reading awareness (and donation interest) in the Burning Through Pages project, a nonprofit group giving away books to kids. Which, obviously, I kind of totally love the idea of. Check out their facebook page and donate.

5. 10 Gorgeous Buildings Made Out of Books (Flavorwire)

 Cute and creative. :0)

  •  

And lastly…

Methinks I owe you a recipe. We slept outside in the tent this weekend, and I made these S’mores Cookie Bars (in fact, I may have made them twice *grin*). They’re even better than they look. (Is that possible? Apparently, yes.) The recipe is over at Lovin’ From the Oven. Check it out. Oh, and the only thing I did differently with the recipe is I used dark chocolate for half (and milk choc for the other 1/2) and replaced 1/3 of the marshmallow cream with mini marshmallows (this seemed to hold the gooey cookies together better).

Have a great week, you guys! And if you have any links or bookish tidbits you’ve found interesting (or you just want to gush about the randomness of that whole Thoreau video-gaming thing), leave us a comment!

Happy reading and eating and all around book browsing!

    Fun! And those were seriously amazing. I am not allowing myself to make them while I have part of the family out of the house – as I will eat the whole pan. I eat sweets when I’m lonely… ah who’s kidding. I eat sweets all the time :)

    Pics four and five are everything! I love the kids pic because that is so true! And how awesome is that little book house. I wish I had something like that to play in when I was a kid.
