Weekly Roundup: What To Read This Weekend


As the long weekend approaches—and with it hours of splendid free time to catch up on your reading—we round up a few things we found and loved this week.

Art: Public art installations for hearing, not seeing. We’re all ears, via Atlas Obscura.

Tech: Even pen-and-paper gals sometimes use apps to keep busy lives in check. Here are some worth a download, via Into the Gloss.

Travel: What happens to a hotel without any guests? It’s grim, grungy and somehow beautiful, via Gothamist.

Curiosities: Among things making a comeback (fleece, sherry, ’70s-style running shorts)…accordions? via The Atlantic.

Word: Soigné (adj., French): possessing an aura of sophistication in dress or manner; elegant.
