As Books Editors, we set aside more designated reading time than most people do. Still, even we are daunted by copies of The Goldfinch looming on our desks.

Kel Mitchell Is Returning To Nickelodeon!

The actor, who spent the majority of the ‘90s doing sketch comedy on “Kenan and Kel” and “All That,” will be back on Nickelodeon this fall on the network’s new hit series “Sam and Cat.”
