Our No Scrolling Reading List, Issue #4

You’ve seen our #NoScrolling man; he’s there to warn you when you’re mindlessly scrolling through a feature at the speed of a Snapchat, encouraging you to back up because you might be missing something. We know we’re not the only ones out there producing content worth your while, which is why every Saturday, we’ll curate a #NoScrolling reading list. Just like our favorite classic movies or the restaurants we’re regulars at, they’ll be content we want to consume then come back to (maybe even multiple times over!). Issue 4, coming at you…

An un-retouched Jane Fonda is on the cover of this month’s Town & Country – that’s all we needed to hear to go pick up a copy. 

This week Catherine tore through Walter Isaacson’s new biography of Leonardo da Vinci. With new drawings and pages from da Vinci’s notebooks, this biography provides an unforeseen look into the artist’s life. If you’re a fan of Renaissance works or are a secret science nerd, this is the book for you.

Cook Beautiful, the new cookbook from Athena Calderone of EyeSwoon, is a new favorite source for recipes and inspiration. Unsurprising, given it’s beautiful imagery and entertaining tips. The recipes are organized seasonally, which makes hosting a dream, not to mention the fact that they all look insanely delicious.

Danielle is intrigued by – and immediately purchased – Diane Keaton’s The House That Pinterest Built. From the photos, the new book about designing her home looks absolutely incredible. Diane, if you’re reading this: you can come redesign our apartments anytime you want.

Claridge’s: The Cookbook is our new obsession. Recipes include the famous Chicken Pie (a menu mainstay) and the secret Christmas Pudding. Even if you can’t make it to London, you can conjure up a proper British holiday right in your NYC apartment.

TNP alum Emma Heming Willis is on the cover Elle Decor this month with her husband Bruce Willis and their precious family. The shoot is adorable and made Danielle smile. Think they’d let us move in? 

It’s been a long and stressful week, and for some reason, reading The Little Prince puts things in perspective for Laura. It’s a classic children’s book for adults, but if you haven’t read it, get on it. 

Speaking of children’s books, we featured Hilary Knight, the illustrator of one of our favorite children’s books Eloise this week. Eloise at the Plaza never gets old; it’s the perfect thing to curl up with – with or without a lil’ potato.
