BOOK | Imagine you’re living in an underground silo after a nuclear apocalypse. You can see the wasteland outside, but you can never go there. You and your ancestors before you have been underground for so long that nobody really knows what happened to put you there. In Hugh Howey’s immersive Wool, you feel as if you are right there with the residents of the silo. I couldn’t put it down. I dreamed about it. When I was finished, I immediately sought out more silo stories. Luckily, there are several.

WEBSITE | Sometimes, you fall so in love with a pair of shoes that you wish they made them in every color. The people behind Chromatic Gallerie obviously understand this, because you can get their classic round-toed pump in a whopping 45 colors. On top of that, you have your choice of three heel heights, three width choices, and high quality materials like patent, leather and suede. Zooey Deschanel loves them, and you should too.

GAME | There’s something about a classic platforming video game that’s simply irresistible. Add adorable characters, a hilarious narrator and nonsensical weapons (like an exploding frog with a top hat and cane), and you have Battleblock Theater, an addictive XBox Live Arcade game. Boasting both single player and up to four-player cooperative play, this inexpensive game has loads of replay value. You’ll be laughing the entire way.
