The real story behind The Conjuring and four other horror movies 'based on a true story'
Sign Up for Our free email newsletters Last weekend, James Wan's paranormal thriller The Conjuring scared both moviegoers and its box-office competition with a hefty $41 million gross in the middle of summer — a time when we're all supposed to be watching movies about superheroes and giant robots. Made on a relatively thrifty budget of $20 million, The Conjuring outgrossed its far more expensive rivals like R.I.P.D. and Turbo on a marketing campaign that can be boiled down to five words: "Based on a true story."

Are Libraries Dying or Thriving?
One of the towns I used to live in is apparently raising two million dollars for renovations to its library.

The Original Internet: Still a Great Place to Visit
As happens many a Sunday, today I spent the afternoon with some friends getting brunch and then browsing an independent bookstore on Court Street in Brooklyn. I spend an unhealthy amount of time browsing blogs and websites. Fewer and fewer of these sites (and their content) are inspiring me.
