Friday Pix: Recommended Reading For The Weekend

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

1. I thoroughly enjoyed this in-depth description of what it’s *really* like to read something on the Kindle by Nicholson Baker in last week’s New Yorker. Especially loved how he threw in the odd literary reference throughout the piece. Fun writing!

2. Beautifully written piece on The Wilderness of Childhood by Michael Chabon in the New York Times Book Review about a month or so ago that I just discovered. The sentiment isn’t all that original but the writing is.

3. Slate ran a thought-provoking series entitled “The End of America” this week by Josh Levin. Among the things he contemplates:  climate change, totalitarian rule and Mormonism. Pick your pleasure.

4. This was a particularly moving account of the impact of the recession on one family in the Washington Post.

5. My two cents on a new immigration reform proposal here in the UK over at politicsdaily.com.

6. Finally, in the realm of “just because,” here are Ten Things You Didn’t Know About the Penny.
