Books/Reading
C'mon Internet, what did we say about judging books by their covers? This is why we can't have nice things. After a 2006 myth about books bound, Ed Gein-like, in human flesh lying in the Harvard stacks resurfaced yesterday, Boston Magazine took it upon themselves to crush a nation of gore-hungry Redditors with the truth - the book is actually bound in sheep skin.

Beyoncé’s right: More men need to be outspoken feminists
twitter chatter
Beyoncé has been criticized lately for her ideas on feminism, both positively and negatively. She quotes Nigerian writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s TED talk about feminism in the track “Flawless” off her new self-titled album. In her latest endeavor on her journey to becoming the face of another feminist wave, Beyoncé has written an essay entitled “Gender Equality Is a Myth!” for Maria Shriver’s new ebook "The Shriver Report: A Woman’s Nation Pushes Back from the Brink," which can be downloaded for free on Amazon. Her essay is short and to the point. More

Boston through a writer’s eyes: 10 books set in our city
Boston
Boston has inspired hundreds of short stories, Hollywood films, and historical novels, but some depictions of the city ring more true to locals than others. Immersing ourselves in a fictional Boston, as imagined by an author, can change the way we look at our city. More
