You-Can-Now-Read-Classic-Novels-on-Instagram-Stories

Insta Novels is a new project from the New York Public Library that brings classic reads to your phone via Instagram Stories. You don’t need a library card to read them; all you have to do is head to @nypl and browse the selection in their saved stories, though you may want to wait because right now it’s only Alice in Wonderland. Still, we’re pretty excited, as the artwork for the animated covers looks incredible and there are no due dates for us to miss. Yes, there are limitations. As far as we know, there’s no way to save your place and pick it up later, so you’re basically committing yourself to a full book in one sitting—or at least one large chunk of a book, since they broke Alice in Wonderland into two parts. Franz Kafka’s The Metamorphosis is on the way along with other works, so toss them a follow and keep your eye out.

Retro-Video-Game-Puzzle-IF2

We’ve long been obsessed with Things Organized Neatly, the Tumblr, Instagram account, and book that displays collections of items arranged in pleasing ways. It’s the reason we’re hard at work on this puzzle. When finished, the puzzle depicts a collection of retro video games and gaming systems aligned ever so perfectly. Each is made in the USA by the New York Puzzle Company and features original photography from artist Jim Golden. At 1000 pieces, it will put you to work for some time, but when you complete it you can use some puzzle glue and frame it on your wall. Out of chaos comes order, right?
