There’s nothing we love more than reading interesting things. Welcome to the Digitales Digest, where every Friday, we round up some of the best articles, opportunities and more that we’ve discovered and shared on Twitter and Facebook over the past few days.


YOU TURNED ANOTHER PAGE

I don’t know about you, but one of my favourite books when I was young was The Monster at the End of This Book – a Golden Book in which Grover implores the reader not to continue reading the book because there’s a terrifying monster at the end. Author David Burr Gerard is a fan too. He writes for LitHub about the influence Grover had on his life as a reader and as a writer.

Obviously I don’t remember exactly what drew me to the book; this was before I knew that attachment to a book was something that required an explanation. But I think I sensed something agreeably weird and different in it.

Game of Loans

Any Game of Thrones fans out there? If you haven’t seen the most recent episode, you might want to skip this next bit. Not that I’m going to discuss any massive spoilers or anything, but still…just in case.

Right. For those who saw Monday’s episode, Sam started work in the Citadel library, which involves a lot of heavy duty reshelving, as well as bedpan cleaning, toilet scrubbing and helping out with the odd dissection. Gross. But at least he doesn’t have to show people how to use the photocopier five times a day, right?

Anyway, so those heavy chains keeping the books on their shelves in the Citadel library? Turns out that real medieval libraries chained their books to the shelves as well…to prevent patrons doing exactly what Sam does in Monday’s episode. Read all about it


Cats aren’t jerks. Science says so.

People who scoff that cats only hang around with humans for food – you are SO wrong. New research has found that most cats, when faced with the choice, will choose human socialisation to food. Take THAT, dog lovers. Click here to read the rest.

Smart Sounds

Ohhh nooooooo. As if I’m not already far enough behind in my podcast listening, the BBC had to go and write a list of great podcasts. NICE ONE, BBC.

podcastsEntitled “The Best 24 Podcasts to Make You Smarter”, this list is brimming with podcasts that sound amazing. And clever. I’m going to need more listening time. And possibly a bigger pair of headphones to fit around my expanding brain…


On the Digitales Blog…

Actually, it’s been a little while since our last Digitales Digest (shhh!) so we’ve got a few reviews lined up to share! Here’s what we thought of The Lego Batman Movie, The Boss Baby and Ghost in the Shell.
