In a huge departure from my usual offerings, here’s another ‘thing about books’ to enjoy. Bookshelf Porn is a joyfully innocent collection of images celebrating the many and varied ways in which collections of books can be displayed.

Authentic American diner food and atmosphere courtesy of Ed’s Easy American Diner, right on your Great British doorstep. Several franchises throughout the UK and a handful in London, it’s the most fun I’ve had while eating sweet potato fries recently. Take a stash of 20p coins for the jukebox.
Ben Howard singing Oats In The Water in Radio 1’s live lounge has taught me to appreciate non-indulgent guitar solos.
Are you happy the Twilight franchise has come to an end? Robert Pattinson sure seems to be.
