gildedhistory:

Aphrodite was frequently depicted in ancient sculptures wearing a distinct  hairstyle coined the “Aphrodite knot.” This knotted hairstyle was also featured, and particularly popular, on Greco-Roman women’s portrait busts from around 50 BC. The hair was simply separated into two sections and tied in a square knot on the top of the head.

HarperCollins has launched a pilot program that we’re happy to be  a part of. Here’s the skinny: buy a physical copy of a select group of titles for a slightly higher price (just a couple bucks) and get the ebook version as well. Stop by the store to check it out.

Awesome!!
