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 7, coming at you…
Christian Siriano: Dresses to Dream About, don’t even get us started. We’ve been waiting for Christian Siriano to put this thing out for years. We know they say don’t judge a book by its cover, but the dress on the cover? It truly speaks for itself…it is just as beautiful as what’s written (and photographed) inside.
Nostalgic Potatoheads that we are, we are always and forever Joan Didion fans. So when the new documentary came out about her life, we decided to revisit The Year of Magical Thinking. Verdict? It’s just as compelling as ever.
Literally Me is one of Catherine’s favorite new books this month. It features darkly comic illustrated essays from Julie Houts. It is bizarre and sharp, perfect for reading on the subway during a long commute.
Get lost in Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express before going to see the movie this weekend. And if that isn’t enough to scratch your murder-mystery itch, Laura recommends picking up a copy of one of her favorites The A.B.C. Murders.
It goes without saying that we’re huge fans of Cherry Bombe (shoutout to our recent interview with Kerry Diamond). This quarter’s edition has Chef April Bloomfield on the cover, and we couldn’t be more excited to get our hands on a copy.
The holiday issue of Departures (also known as Danielle’s bible) is out: For us, this magazine is always a home run with fantastic illustrations, and the New York edition makes us more excited than ever for the holiday season.
Laura is really loving Making Movies by Sidney Lumet (aka one of her favorite directors) this month. Lumet takes you through the process of creating great films, and it is written through his own personal experience of working with icons like Katharine Hepburn and Paul Newman.
So, remember not to scroll too fast and, for many of these, you can’t scroll at all…Enjoy your Saturday at the pace it was meant to be enjoyed.
