Welcome to the Round Up – our recurring compilation of the interesting, intriguing, and just plain weird things we find on the internet.

  • Making Amalgam Great Again  –  If you’re like me and had foreign dentistry procedures, you’ll appreciate this visit to famed Molar City. If you haven’t, this may be a good way to combine perhaps your least favorite things (going to the dentist) with one of your favorite things (international travel).   (Buzzfeed)
  • “The Road is Life”  –  Few of my friends know this, but I was once a PhD candidate in library science. I love books, ergo I love book stores. It’s exciting to know there are 50 independent book stores still left in America. (Especially since our local, sadly, closed its doors on Sunday!) And as much as I like Amazon, there is simply something mesmerizing about a store filled with real books. As for New York, I like the quirkiness of the area around Prince and Mott but, tough call as to whether that’s the best in NYC.  (The Culture Trip)
  • Leftovers  – Before there was Pinterest, there was this. It reminds me of Jennifer’s Princess cruise a few years ago on the old Love Boat route, complete with late 70’s cuisine.  (CNN)
