Listen Up: The Latest #ReadingThings and What It Takes to Do Winter Right

Listen Up BY brooke zindulka 02/27/2017


Yes, it was 65 degrees in NYC when recorded this podcast, but that’s not stopping Claire and Erica talking about their renewed love of winter sports. They’re also disproving that trope about fairy tales having happy endings, care of a discussion of our latest #ReadingThings pick, Mr. Fox by Helen Oyeyemi. Spoiler alert: We had mixed feelings about it!

And now that your literary schedule is open again, pick up a copy of This One Summer, a graphic novel by very cool cousins Jillian and Mariko Tamako, which we’ll be talking about on April 10th.

In other important news: This episode of #ReadingThings is brought to you by our friends at Warby Parker—because books and glasses might just be best duo since Claire and Erica. To check out a collection of C&E’s hand-selected specs—with free try-ons, shipping covered both ways!—head on over to for all kinds of intellectual, wire-framed goodness!

On skiing and snowshoeing our way into 2017...




On #ReadingThings, Mr. Fox by Helen Oyeyemi…

  • So this wasn’t our favorite #ReadingThings pick of all time, but Helen Oyeyemi is a pretty big badass (she wrote five books before turning 30!). So check out her other work for sure!
  • If you are curious to learn more about Bluebeard, Catherine Breillat’s dark-but-beautiful 2009 film of the same name is a good place to start.
