Every Monday, words to start the week. 

This week: words from a hotel in Tokyo called Book and Bed, an "accommodation bookshop" that caters to book lovers who relish the experience of falling asleep while reading (the beds are hidden behind the bookshelves). "The perfect setting for a good night's sleep is something you will not find here," the site says. "What we do offer is an experience while reading a book. An experienced shared by everyone at least once: the blissful 'instant of falling asleep.' It is already 2 am but you think just a little more...with heavy drooping eye lids you continue reading, only to realize you have fallen asleep."

Visit Book and Bed, here. Thanks, Sadie Stein.

A few more, just because: 
-Modern pantry staples. (Black garlic, anyone?)
-A lamp designed to resemble a blade of grass bending in the wind.
-Via Kottke: fascinating updates to Richard Scarry classics.
-Lastly, my friend Monica has a new comedy series out called EX-BEST. The show focuses on two women who must "forge individual identities after their friend 'break-up' leaves them adrift in the adult world." It's 13 episodes, four minutes each. Check it out, here.

More recommended reading, here. Have a very happy Monday.


  1. That lamp is so pretty, love the thought behind it and so stoked to see Nutritional Yeast made it onto the list, I just finished adding a few heaped tablespoons in my dinner tonight!!

  2. I definitely want to stay there. For weeks. Without a smartphone.

  3. What Paw said. I've only watched the first two episodes of Ex-Best so far, and am loving it. Thanks for always pointing me in such wonderful internet directions!

  4. MY GOODNESS. That hotel looks amazing! Bookmarking for my next trip.
