Friday Pix: Recommended Reading For The Weekend

Every Friday I point you to some worthwhile reading around the blogosphere:

1. I absolutely adored this article by Virginia Heffernan about how the internet liberated women.

2. I was really moved by this interview on BBC’s Radio Four with a woman who learned that her father was a Commandant at Auschwitz. (Have I told you how much I love the BBC?)

3. On the humorous end of things, here’s a great post on Stuff White People Like about why White People prefer Conan over Jay.

4. This essay in The Huffington Post by Sarah Tomlinson about the new economy also made me laugh.

5. I was quite taken with some of the reactions to my post about recurrent dreams. Here’s a dictionary of dreams over at Smartgirl that I stumbled across while writing that post.

6. Finally, in the Department of Shameless Promotion, I wanted to share that an essay of mine entitled “Married to a Metrosexual” was published in the new edition of the Chicken Soup franchise, Chicken Soup For The Soul: True Love. (Sorry – you’ll need to buy that one!)

    Can’t get into the “Stuff White People Like” blog. Can you imagine if YOU started a blog called, “Stuff Black People Like.” I saw a story the other day which proved that all you have to do is show fried chicken and a black person in the same picture in an advertisement and the ad is considered “offensive.” Is there something wrong with a stereotype that’s (God forbid) true? They do it everyday at “Stuff White People Like” – for comedy!
