What if Darth Vader had been evil, yet still managed to be a good father to Luke and Leia? I don’t think he would have had a hard time getting them to go to bed, he could have force choked them to sleep I think.
Bookworms will be pleased to know that there’s another way to store and display books aside from shelves. In addition to furniture that incorporates space where you can arrange your books (like the Sunflower Chair), there are installations like the Hanging Book Rack that lets you do it with more flair.
Last year we featured Dexter Industries’ Bookreader, a device mostly made of LEGO and a Raspberry Pi that can read text from a Nexus 7 tablet. It seems like the contraption was a hit, but people kept telling the company to make one that can read actual books on its own.
We’ve featured a sneaky book-shaped pillow before, but it’s quite expensive for what it does. On the other hand, no one’s going to mistake ThinkGeek’s Olde Book Pillow Classics for actual books, but they’re more affordable.
I’ve always been a big proponent of making insults and insinuations that are both understandable, and bizarre. You don’t want to insult someone in a normal fashion with something old and boring.

I recently started watching the first few seasons of Archer on Netflix. I blame you all for not telling me how awesome the show was before. If you are a big fan of the show, you might wonder how you can be more like the world’s greatest spy, code-name Dutchess.
Jeffrey Brown’s Darth Vader and Son and Vader’s Little Princess might be the cutest Star Wars retcon ever. The books feature a caring Anakin looking after Luke and Leia. Gentle Giant Ltd. is going to release a limited edition bundle of the two books, which will include adorable figurines of the Skywalkers.
I’ve said on many occasions, one of my all time favorite movies of my youth is The Princess Bride. I’ve punched people in the past for saying it was a chick flick. The film is one of those cult classics that I’ve shared with my kids, and ended up with a chihuahua named Buttercup thanks to it.
They say you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover. Unless the book’s cover has the logo of the Nintendo 64 on it, along with a power switch and a cartridge slot. Also when the book wasn’t actually a book to begin with.
How long has it been since you actually cracked an encyclopedia open? Most people head straight to their computers and Google whatever it is they need more information on these days. Few, if any, still turn to the volumes of Britannica or Funk and Wagnalls, because what’s printed there is likely to be outdated.
