Good Night Darth Vader Book: Force Sleep

Good Night Darth Vader Book: Force Sleep
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.

LEGO & Raspberry Pi OCR Hack Now Reads Books Aloud, Still Sounds Horrible

LEGO & Raspberry Pi OCR Hack Now Reads Books Aloud, Still Sounds Horrible
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.

Pillow Books: Snoozefest

Pillow Books: Snoozefest
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.

Shakespeare Insult Generator Book Forms Insults Only Your Literature Teach Understands

Shakespeare Insult Generator Book Forms Insults Only Your Literature Teach Understands
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. At the same time, if you have to explain to the person you insulted just what your insult meant, it takes the sting out of the barb.

From the ISIS Library: How to Archer

From the ISIS Library: How to Archer
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.

We love books like The Hobbit because they really come alive in our hands. In this case, the book really comes alive with a fearsome paper Smaug leaping out from the pages.

Cary Elwes to Write Behind the Scenes The Princess Bride Book

Cary Elwes to Write Behind the Scenes The Princess Bride Book
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.

N64 Book Casemod: The Nintendomicon

N64 Book Casemod: The Nintendomicon
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.

If Wikipedia Had a Print Edition

If Wikipedia Had a Print Edition
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.
