The Friday Five

Categories: the friday five
We here at B&N hope you all have a lovely Spring weekend!  Here are this weeks Friday Five:

I just finished reading John Wray's Lowboy and this is a great trailer for it - New Yorkers will especially appreciate it. The city and the subway are themselves characters in this book, and this is a really cool and unique way of presenting it:

Up next is this darkly funny animation based on one of Wells Tower's short stories from this great collection Everything Ravaged, Everything Burned

We're pleased to announce this great new collection of Perry Bible Fellowship strips - one of the funniest webcomics of the past few years. Here are a sample strip!

Now that winter is finally over, here's a great book to help you and your family get out there and get dirty!

And last but not least, here is an excellent, language oriented music video from this wonderful duo of bookish electronic musicians, The Books:

We hope you've enjoyed this weeks Friday Five and that you have an awesome weekend. We'll see you on Monday with more great Unabashedly Bookish content!
