Our No Scrolling Reading List, Issue #5

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 5, coming at you…

NY Mag is celebrating fifty years of publication, and Laura is thoroughly obsessed with My New York, their 50th anniversary issue. It is such a great nostalgic issue, full of tidbits and stories that remind us why we love being New Yorkers.

Peter Lindbergh is hands-down one of Danielle’s favorite photographers, and his book is a must buy for absolutely anyone interested in photography. The book highlights his unique take on fashion photography; his features are really natural and always inspire us. 

Laura has been a fan of Chloë Sevigny for as long as we can remember, an infatuation that only grew after interviewing her for our premiere Food for Thought column. She recently discovered Sevigny’s book, which provides an inside look to the ultimate It-girl’s life. It’s a must-read, to say the least.

Danielle just started reading Manhattan Beach, Jennifer Egan’s newest release. It’s a 1940’s crime story, classic old New York, so you know it’s right up our alley. Add in the fact that Egan is one of our favorite modern writers, and suffice to say, it’s the perfect book to curl up with this weekend.

As part of their 50th Anniversary, The Cut compiled an interactive love map, detailing real New Yorkers’ stories of hookups, missed opportunities, and love connections in NYC. You can even add your own love story – enough said.

Catherine is unashamed to say she’s read Stephanie Danler’s Sweetbitter multiple times (and definitely will read it again). It was just announced that Starz and Brad Pitt (!) are turning it into a television show, so now is the time to pick up a copy before it hits your TV screen.

Night + Market just released their cookbook, and we are over the moon. To say we love this place in Los Angeles would be an understatement; Danielle always makes sure to schedule a shoot there when she’s in LA. The space is amazingly kitschy, and the food is just as awesome. 

Raise your hand if your most recent dinner invitation read something like this rambling (humorous!) piece from The New Yorker? Guilty as charged.

Catherine always picks up Donna Tartt’s Secret History in the fall. It’s a murder mystery (kind of) and is set in Vermont, which makes it inherently cozy. Best enjoyed wrapped in a blanket whilst drinking a hearty red.
