Weekly Roundup: What To Read This Weekend


We can’t wait to enjoy our first full weekend of extra daylight—and while we don’t technically need that hour to read on our many screens, it sure will be nice. Here’s what we’ll be enjoying when we’re not out soaking up the sun.

Art: Doug Wheeler’s space installations use beams of light to make walls disappear and it’s pretty mind-bending, via Collab Cubed.

Film: Ever notice that Wes Anderson’s characters only move in a straight line across the screen? We didn’t either. The more you know, via Vulture.

Curiosities: Hilarious lost and found flyers for things no one is looking for are also adorably earnest, via The Bold Italic.

Sleep: For every person who whines about their mattress, there is someone else out there getting a really great night of sleep, at least according to these love letters to the most popular mattresses on the market, via Apartment Therapy.

Food: “It’s been some years since I mastered the art of dressing strawberries in tuxedos.” One writer recounts her adventures in fancy food  via The Paris Review

Literature: If your eyes are tired, we have just the thing: 550 audio books. Free, via Open Culture.

Word: mondegreen (n., English): a word or phrase that results from a mishearing of something said. The word, itself a mondegreen, comes from a 1954 magazine article by Sylvia Wright in which she misheard the folk lyric, “…and laid him on the green” as “Lady Mondegreen.”
