This almost brought tears to my eyes. Philip Graham at The Millions on reading with his son – “Maybe those days of curling up in bed with a story were long gone, but what if we read the same book together silently, side by side, in the living room? If I bought two copies of a novel, we could take on chapter-length chunks each evening and then discuss what we’d just read. Perhaps in this way I could gently lead my son to an appreciation of the deeper internal landscapes that literature offers…The pace of the plot kept us constantly engaged” RT

You go girl. Finally someone speaks the truth. Fit mom Maria Kang on the firestorm of criticism about her photo – “What I WILL say is this. What you interpret is not MY fault. It’s Yours. The first step in owning your life, your body and your destiny is to OWN the thoughts that come out of your own head. I didn’t create them. You created them. So if you want to continue ‘hating’ this image, get used to hating many other things for the rest of your life. You can either blame, complain or obtain a new level of thought by challenging the negative words that come out of your own brain.” RT

Benedict Cumberbatch, who wins ALL THE THINGS, does an amazing Chewbacca Impression. My favorite, though? Harrison Ford’s face. RT

Illuminating post on the clothes behind the fall’s best comedy. “Mindy’s personal style is a lot more edgy, and Mindy on the show is more of a urban hipster. So there are outfits that Mindy Lahiri wears on the show that Mindy Kaling wouldn’t, but I’ve definitely seen Mindy changing it up — she’ll find out where I bought something and get one for herself and add it to her wardrobe. I think that Mindy’s personal style has grown with access to the clothes she has on the show. Much like Sarah Jessica Parker, she was never the fashion plate before “Sex and the City” that she is now.” RT

According to Lifehacker, standing for 3 hours a day works miracles – the equivalent of running 10 marathons a year RT

The SF Chronicle has created a gorgeous Bay Area Literary Map RT
