In Our Feeds: Fall, Light Sabers, Sesame Street

Every Friday, we share a handful of links that we found funny, provocative or just plain cool. We call it In Our Feeds. Have a great weekend!

It's the first official Friday of the fall season, so grab a pumpkin latte and pull up a chair. We've got some great links to share!

Michael is getting ready to host Star Wars Reads Day in The Scholastic Store next weekend, so it's no surprise he sent me this link: Scientists have created light-matter similar to Darth Vader's light saber. (Currently brainstorming on how to turn that into a self-lighting bookmark for those of us who like to read in bed...)

If you're planning on doing some book buying this weekend, Brittany would like to remind you: Indie bookstores aren't dead yet! New data is showing that paper booksellers are acting as community hubs (and, happily, a place where authors can meet fans).

Meanwhile, you might have seen this one around: Jimmy Fallon and The Roots join the Sesame Street gang for a little music! It's sure to put a smile on your face. (Thanks, Alex!)

What links are you looking forward to catching up on this weekend? Feel free to share 'em below. Have a great one!
