The TBR List: November 8

Balena Tagliolini

This week's TBR List is brought to you by my birthday.

- Have you voted in the Goodreads Best of 2013 poll yet? I was thrilled to see so many of our recommended books as nominees.

- This is how I plan to turn down invitations moving forward.

- These photos of people reading all over the world have me thinking I need to scout out a new curled-up-with-a-book spot.

- Another year, another "Kid, I ate your Halloween candy" video. As always, I was thoroughly entertained.

- Remembering Charlie Trotter.

- A clip from Catching Fire! What, you're not as excited for the movie as I am?

- If the FDA has its way, it'll be bye-bye, trans fats in the future.

- Here's how they achieved all those crazy photos in Modernist Cuisine.

- Finally, scientists have figured out the best time to drink coffee for MAX POWER UPS.
