Friday Pix: Recommended Reading for the Weekend

This Friday I point you to some recommended reading around the blogosphere:

1. If you’re intrigued by the public sculpture “plinth” project currently underway in London, here are some really cool videos to go with it.

2. I liked this person’s pro-active approach to setting up a summer reading program for grown-ups. If you’re running out of summer reading ideas, why not try some of these lost or unpublished works by some of the great names of modern literature.

3. And while we’re on the subject of modern literature, I was delighted to come across this blog at the National Book Foundation, which features a blog a day on the winners of the National Book Award from 1950-2008. (Hat Tip: the ever-useful Practicing Writing blog).

4. Finally, if you’re a fan of the New York Times’ Modern Love column, you’ll love this new (to me) blog deconstructing each week’s winners (Hat Tip: Lisa Romeo Writes).

    Just wanted to write a quick thank-you for your blog (which I discovered via Gretchen Rubin’s Happiness Project blog) — I’m enjoying your thoughts and suggestions, and you’ve led me to a wealth of other good writing. Much appreciated!
