Anyone else following this story about Patrick Rothfuss? His editor (whom he has praised to the heavens and back in the past) posted some choice comments on Facebook a few days ago. Among them was one in which she speculated that Pat hasn’t written a word of Book 3 in six years!! (The Guardian)

Imagine studying the source of stones used to build Stonehenge, and after centuries these historians are like “We found the source! These stones came from…15 miles down the road!” (Ars Technica)

Y’all. How do we feel about Prince William giving Harry relationship advice about Meghan when he once gifted Kate … *checks notes* …a pair of binoculars? What a romantic! (T&C)

And speaking of, so it sounds like not only are Wills and Harry fighting (whilst their wives get the blame) but also that Harry was squabbling with his grandmum’s dresser. Seriously, is everyone in that palace spoilt and petty? (Celebitchy)

I am loathe to link to anything that Kardashian-related, but the tour of Kendall Jenner’s house? It’s nice? A lot more down to earth that I would have assumed. The green tile in the bathroom is gorgeous. (AD)

For the first time in 20 years, @oprah has given up her O Magazine cover to honor Breonna Taylor. She says, “Breonna Taylor. She was just like you. And like everyone who dies unexpectedly, she had plans. Plans for a future filled with responsibility and work and friends and laughter. Imagine if three unidentified men burst into your home while you were sleeping. And your partner fired a gun to protect you. And then mayhem. What I know for sure: We can’t be silent. We have to use whatever megaphone we have to cry for justice. And that is why Breonna Taylor is on the cover of O magazine. I cry for justice in her name.” Tap the link in our bio to read more about Oprah’s tribute to Breonna—and her recent conversation with her mother, Tamika Palmer. Breonna: This one’s for you 🙏🏽 The September issue will be available wherever you buy or download your magazines on 8/11. (🎨: @alexis_art)
