OUR PICS OF THE WEEK: GET PUMPED AND SEEK JUSTICE

BUY | EGG WEIGHTS

Many people have difficulty making time for an adequate workout routine that includes both cardio and resistance training. With Egg Weights, combine both of these elements into single exercises for greater convenience and better overall results from your workout. The weights are a perfect way to take charge of your own cardio and weight training routines. Found on Amazon for $39.95.

WATCH | LUPIN

Inspired by the adventures of Arsène Lupin, gentleman thief Assane Diop sets out to avenge his father for an injustice inflicted by a wealthy family. Netflix has released the first five episodes; each one is about 45 minutes long. The show was filmed in French, but the English voice overs are pretty seamless and impressive. Or watch it in French with English subtitles. Available on Netflix.

 

READ | THE DARKEST EVENING

For readers who like the Louise Penny novels, Ann Cleeve’s Vera Stanhope novels fall into a similar category — just a little less cutesy. The novel is set in the U.K. (instead of Canada) and features a female lead detective chief Vera instead of chief inspector Armand Gamache. Similarities, though, stretch to tidy, rural towns and townspeople with deep secrets. Found on Libby smart phone app, free.
