What's On at Flavorpill: The Links That Made the Rounds In Our Office

Today at Flavorpill, we were surprised that both Jane Austen and William Shakespeare failed to make the cut in this list of Americans’ favorite British authors. We found out what our favorite ’80s band says about us. We wondered what an ad for Zookeeper was doing hanging out in an old episode of How I Met Your Mother. We took a black and white photo tour of old school Harlem. We felt inspired by this open letter to aspiring artists from Pixar animator Austin Madison. We were amused by the changes made in this abbreviated and simplified version of The Great Gatsby. We saw how easy it is to drop $1 million at Tiffany when you’ve got a ten-point action plan. We wondered how Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s short story collection will compare to James Franco’s. We were surprised to find out that Eminem is the first artist to sell 1 million downloads of an album. And finally, we loved Laura Miller’s feature on the Invisible Library and the greatest books that never were. Do you have a favorite imaginary book?
