Friday Pix: Recommended Reading For The Weekend

Every Friday I point you towards some recommended reading around the blogosphere:

1. I always love the posts over at Communicatrix, but I especially enjoyed this meditation on the little things in life that make your day run more smoothly (life hacks, for those in the know). Be sure to read the comment section for loads more suggestions!

2. I found this first-hand account of what it’s like to ghost write student term papers over at the Chronicle of Higher Education to be absolutely chilling. I literally had to stop reading half-way through because of the pit in my stomach.

3. This send-up of Sarah Palin by Alexandra Petri at the Washington Post may well be the funniest thing I’ve read to date on our friend from Alaska. (And Lord knows there’s been lots of material!)

4. Loved the Ikea Guide to Baby-Making, courtesy of the ever-amazing Guy Kawasaki at Holy Kaw!

5. For the Americans out there, two Thanksgiving posts I really liked a lot. The first is the fabulous Deb Ng’s list of all the things she *isn’t* thankful for. (I’m not thankful for brussel sprouts either.)

6. The second is a thoughtful post in the New York Times on gratitude (and moral progress) by one of my favorite American writers, Robert Wright.

7. Finally, for those following events in the U.K., here’s my latest post from Politics Daily on what the latest round of student protests means for the future.


Have a great weekend!

    Re student protests — I’m with the kids. And what exactly is the proposal Mr. Clegg is pushing that he says would be better than what students are proposing??

    Did the reply I just posted go through? I said that I’m with the kids, but what is the government proposal Mr. Clegg says would be better than what students propose?

  3. Wow. You aren’t kidding about that lit-gun-for-hire piece. Chilling.
