Authors can totally be stylish, too!

Lena Dunham promoted her book Not That Kind Of Girl yesterday at Barnes & Noble with a book signing at The Grove, and she looked really chic and cute!

We learned a few weeks ago that Nasty Gal's Sophia Amoruso would be styling the actress and writer for her book tour, though we couldn't find this particular outfit in the lookbook.

Regardless, the flared black dress and crackled white jacket made for a perfect outfit for a book signing. We really like her zippered shoes, too!

Well, we know how it got that way!

The 45-year-old singer was doing a tough arm workout with trainer Tracy Anderson, and even though J. Lo's body had all of our attention, Miz Anderson couldn't say the same.

How Do You Get Teens To Read? If You're The Nashville Public Library, You Parody A Pop Song About Books!!

| Filed under: Music MinuteBookzFunnyAmazing

Not enough people have library cards!!

Apparently only 48% of Davidson County residents have a library card, and they're looking to change that!

What better way to make books seem cool than to parody the super popular hit All About That Bass by Meghan Trainor?

It turns out the 7th Heaven star may have only himself to blame.

In the 90s, Collins wrote a pair of erotic, 50 Shades-style novels, Eye Contact and the unfortunately named Double Exposure.

According to a source, one of Collins' alleged victims actually read the books around the year 2000.

They must have hit a little too close to home, because that's when she decided to
