Rubin Stuart’s nuanced biography of Mercy Otis Warren, America’s first, Revolution-era female playwright, poet, and historian.

If you don't dare utter that snarky comment going through your head at work, let Anne Taintor's fabulous office supplies do the talking for you--while giving your desk a sweet style boost. Vintage images and retro graphics combined with witty, sarcastic blurbs make Taintor's impossibly cute, incredibly smart file folders, notepads, and other not-so-basic office staples irresistible. We got the Fancy File Folders from her Modern Office Revisited line (only $12 for a pack of six!), and we can't stop oohing and ahhing. The Sticky Notes and Nifty Notepads are also on my wish list.

In 2004, the Women's Flat Track Derby Association formed to promote the sport, and you know BUST has written about roller derby many a time. Other media outlets like CNN have also been giving these ladies some love lately. I'm not a derby chick myself, but have a lot of respect for their extraordinary athleticism, skill, and toughness.
