My favorite finds from around the web:
• Netflix is reportedly bringing back Gilmore Girls. “Gilmore Girls feels the most karmically appropriate of them all: a chance for Sherman-Palladino, who exited the show after its sixth and penultimate season because of a contract dispute, to right the wrongs done in her absence.”
• Someone returned library books after 52 years, left an awesome note. “Lucky for the borrower, PSU doesn’t charge fines for late books.”
• How Jane Austen helped inspire Elena Ferrante’s disappearing act. “When Ferrante fell in love with Austen’s novels in her 20s, she writes, “I was passionate about her anonymity.” The original readers of Sense and Sensibility were told only that it was “by a lady.””
• Slightly fewer Americans are reading print books, new survey finds. “The data reveal a somewhat surprising generational pattern in book reading. Young adults – those ages 18 to 29 – are more likely than their elders to have read a book in the past 12 months.”
Stitch Fix released a brand new app yesterday for the purpose of making your fixes even more personalized. Get yours here: it’s free and it’s really pretty. (It’s also easy to use: I used it to check out yesterday for my latest fix.)
