Star Wars Cult Truths, the Olive Oil Diet and the New Christmas Countdown

What We’re Reading

BY // 01.02.16

Our editors are a diverse lot, and are constantly perusing a long and broad list of publications and sites. Fashion? Art? Architecture? Culinary studies? In What We’re Reading, PaperCity shares the wealth.

There are but 300 and a few odd days remaining until Christmas 2016, so there’s no time like the present to ready your card list. Here’s a brief history of the Christmas card for your edification.

We all like to look, to gaze and see. We’re looking at this in The New York Times, a selection of some of the best Style photos from 2015. Enjoy!

The cult that is Star Wars continues, and there is a new film in the theaters now; perhaps you’ve heard of it. In case you are in need of some Lucas vocabulary learning, we offer this. May the force be with you.

Finally, we’ve made a resolution to consume more olive oil this year. It’s a delicious pour, and it’s good for you. (Plus, Sophia Loren swears by it — two tablespoons every morning and you’re good to go.) Read this and you’ll be a tasting expert.
