FRIDAY, March 4th, 2011welcome {wordy} weekend.

We just received a ton of new & exciting book titles, so we're going to give you lots of wordy and nerdy things to look at this weekend (+ one super-cool and artsy thing).

Let's begin with:

+ This right here, the longest word in the English language.compound_name And here we were thinking it was "supercalifragilisticexpialidocious"... And speaking of words, "bloggable" is now an official word in the Oxford Dictionary. We suppose that's...good?
+ And in pretty things news, take a peek at the most beautiful Scrabble board you've ever seen:
scrabble
+ THE LISA SIMPSON BOOK CLUB!
+ We're not sure if these are on par with little Lisa's heady reading list, but we LOVE our new fashion-related titles for kids and adults, alike. Plus: who can resist Gregory Peck?
fashionbooks
+ And, here's our super-cool and artsy thing for you (and the whole family) to do this weekend (if you can take your nose out of your book): the D.C. Color Splash happens on Saturday at the Corcoran Gallery of Art. Our must-see? The Hip Hop Color Tap Map. Members of the Holly Bass Performance Project will "dip their dance shoes in paint and turn paper-covered floors into a colorful movement map!" (Remember Holly's layers?)
