    Meet 19-year old Peter Clatworthy. He doesn't look happy, does he? That's because Peter paid £450 (~$740) for a shittily printed picture of an X-Box One on eBay. I'd be pissed too -- somebody needs to replace the black toner cartridges in their printer. Plus the right side ... / Continue →

    This is a series by illustrator and graphic designer Jeca Martinez reimagining all the Harry Potter book covers as minimalistic animated GIFs. My favorite is the Prisoner of Azkaban. What's yours? Just kidding, I don't care. Yes I do. I just say things like that to protect... / Continue →

    These are the $16 Lazyglasses from ThinkGeek. They allow you to watch TV or read while lying flat on your back so you don't have to hold your book or head up. They're not actually a new concept though, I posted Skymall's $50 Prism Glasses almost six years ago. But they don't... / Continue →

    This is William Shakespeare's Star Wars, a version of the 'A New Hope' script rewritten in iambic pentameter with all that fancy old-timey talk. I bet Yoda sounds normal. I posted a couple more pictures of the book after the jump, but you can access a PDF of the first 16 page... / Continue →

    Remember Little Golden Books? Those things were awesome and the perfect length for an afternoon potty sesh. Now? Now I sit there in pain for like an hour asking myself why the hell I eat the things I do. Animator Joebot has created a small series of video games (Bioshock, ... / Continue →

    This is a first edition copy of 'El Libro Que No Puede Esperar' (The Book That Can't Wait). It comes in an air-proof bag because, as soon as you open it, the book begins to react with light and oxygen until, two to four months later, all the words have faded from the pages. A... / Continue →

    This is a series of books carved into amazing little landscapes by artist and obvious hater of literacy, Guy Laramee. I'm pretty sure I've seen them going around the internet before, but I'm gonna be Frank with you. Kidding, that's my brother. I'll be honest instead: it's Fr... / Continue →

    Because depressing is the new happy, according to Amazon statistics, eight of the top ten most highlighted book passages come from the Hunger Games series. Granted I didn't bother doing any research to see what overall percentage of Amazon Kindle purchases ARE Hunger Games boo... / Continue →

    To celebrate The Simpson's 500th episode, somebody went and compiled every Bart chalkboard quote from the show's opening. These are them. Well, these are part of them -- you'll have to hit the jump to see them because including the whole graphic on the front page would've mad... / Continue →

    In a move that should come as no surprise to anyone except the very, very old who still can't believe electric car windows exist, Amazon announced its color-screen Kindle today, the $200 Fi-ya (technically 'Fire', but I like to say it like that). People are speculating how muc... / Continue →

    Graphic artist Lishoffs (aka Fabian Gzlez) is at it again, this time combining the characters in the English alphabet with the characters in classic video games. As you can see, A is for absolutely no idea, B is for beats me and C is for clue: I haven't got one. Just kiddin... / Continue →

    This is a little gallery from the pages of a make-believe dictionary of video game idioms. Two of the ten are Zelda references, so it's instantly okay in my book. What's not okay in my book is wiping boogers between the pages. That's nasty. Grow up and eat them like a norma... / Continue →

    This is a video of some asshat driving while reading a book, Kindle and using a cell phone at the same time. Well, not exactly at the same time because he doesn't have twenty eyeballs (that I can see), but he does have enough bad decision-making skills for like six Darwin Awar... / Continue →

    This is a real sign spotted at a Barnes & Noble bookstore. And the question of the hour is this: should we all be excited that kids are at least reading something, or disappointed THERE'S A F***ING 'TEEN PARANORMAL ROMANCE' GENRE? Option two, obviously. I swear, I'm so disgu... / Continue →
