The Underground Book Club You Didn’t Know Existed

Plus, 7 other things to check out on the Internet this week.

Here at The Everygirl, we understand the nature of busy women. You barely have time to eat breakfast in the morning, let alone spend the day surfing the web. That’s why this week, we’re sharing some of our favorite articles on pop culture, design, and more.

1.  A summer book club? Yes, please.

I don’t know about you, but for me, summer means long, luxurious hours spent with the best beach reads — the ones that make your heart race and that you literally can’t put down. When you find that kismet book that absorbs you completely in a new world, you want to share it with anyone and everyone. Enter Talbots’ summer book club — a “give a book, get a book” underground lending library out of your local Talbots stores.

Every time you enter a Talbots store this summer, bring your latest favorite read to drop off for someone else to enjoy and pick up a new story to get lost in. You can even personalize the experience by adding a bookplate to the inside cover with all the reasons you fell in love with the story — like the recommendations at your local bookstore, only way more fabulous. Happy reading!

(P.S. While you’re in store, be sure to check out the adorable outfit our Editorial Intern, Grace, is repping above).

The Witches is legit the scariest movie I’ve ever seen.
