Things We Love #3

We’re doing a little jig in honour of the upcoming, long weekend.





Find out which classic literature inspired your favourite teen movies. Would you have guessed that Clueless was inspired by Jane Austin’s Emma or that 10 Things I Hate About You features The Taming of the Shrew? Easy A featuring Emma Stone might be an easy guess.






What do you think about the poster for the movie adaptation of Yann Martel’s classic novel, Life of Pi? I’ve got to say, I’m kind of loving it! The movie will debut at the New York Film Festival in September and will be widely released on 21 November 2012. Watch the trailer here.











Here are 25 first edition covers of classic books from Flavorwire. I’m a bit of a moth to a flame when it comes to book cover colour, embossing and pizzazz so I’m glad I live in the day and age of more is more (sometimes). But I’m totally feeling this George Orwell cover.
