Coloring Pages Inspired By Classic Books and More Critical Linking

There are plenty of coloring books dedicated to television shows and movies, but what about books? Reading glasses company Readers decided to feed the need by creating a series of coloring pages inspired by classic novels. The six free designs feature Catch 22, Dracula, The Great Gatsby, Lord of the Flies, Little Women, and Moby Dick. Each page has the title of the book along with some appropriately-intricate designs inspired by the novel.

Adult coloring for classic literature lovers, for free.

That sense of community is one reason why Tempe adopted an ordinance that makes available rebates up to $300 to residents who want to install a little free library on their property. Tempe is only the second city in the United States to offer such a program, according to a national group that tracks little free libraries.

The council action, approved earlier this month, also makes the book boxes legal. Previously, they were not allowed under city zoning rules, but officials never enforced the code.

Go Tempe!!


Visitors to Michigan’s three national parks this summer are in for a treat. In addition to the wonders of nature, they might also get an unexpected dose of literature.
