Weekly Roundup: What To Read This Weekend


Spring is getting closer and the weather is getting warmer, but we’ll never tire of cozying up with a few good reads. Here’s a little bit of what we loved around the Internet this week.

Music: St. Vincent’s new album is rife with growls, vocal fry and, well, all the things we love her for. Stream it now, via NPR.

Family: Adorably weird secret words warrant equally adorably weird illustrations, via Fast Company.

Guilty pleasures: Look away from the Netflix. We learned the exact moment a marathon becomes a binge, and it’s all too real, via The Atlantic.

Weather: Safe to share this now that it’s not -10,000°F outside: vintage snaps of people enjoying the snow, via Mental Floss.

Vanities: These photos of symmetrical faces are actually mind-blowing. Mind-mirroring. In short, whoa, via My Modern Met.

Curiosities: An article titled “The Most Influential Candy Bars of All Time.” Educational and seriously munchie-inducing, via Time.

Fun: If you’re reading this, you’re probably as obsessed with jeans as we are. Pin something from our denim love board, and you could win a $1,500 gift card, via Madewell, of course.

Word: uitwaaien (v; Dutch): to take a little break to get some air or clear one’s mind. It translates literally as “to take a walk in the wind.” Pronounce it out-vye-in.
