Friday Pix: Recommended Reading For The Weekend

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

1. As a big believer in slash careers, particularly within writing, I was pleased to see Slate legal columnist Dahlia Lithwick trying her hand at fiction. Apparently, the editors at Slate have given her a (paid) month’s sabbatical to do something really different professionally, and she’s decided to write a chick lit novel in one month before resuming her Supreme Court beat. Read her explanation for why she’s decided to do this (includes a link to the novel in progress). Bravo!

2. And speaking of employment, here’s a great new blog I stumbled across (via @heymarci on Twitter) about an unemployed journalist who decides to drive a taxi. It’s called Recession Taxi. Love it!

3. I daresay that if you’re over the age of 30, you’ll relate to this New York Times illustrated blog post about what keeps us all awake at night in our middle years.

4. Here are two fabulous visual websites: one, a slide show of viral sculpture from the Daily Telegraph and the other, a set of photographs on Mental Floss of  ten unusual playgrounds from around the world.

5. Finally, my thoughts on measuring economic progress over on PoliticsDaily.com.

Have fun and Happy New Year (you know who you are!!)
