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

1. For all of you wondering who wrote the anonymous novel “O” that’s got all of Washington abuzz, Christopher Beam at Slate did a hilarious parody of the book as written by assorted famous people.

2. Enough of the Chinese Tiger Mom, I say. Bring on the Chinese Dad. Here’s Eddie Haung telling his story at Salon.

3. I really enjoyed this post at Formerly Hot, which is all about things we realize we suck at as grown ups (but don’t care.)

4. While you’re at it, you’ll also want to check out Geek Dad’s list of 10 things grown ups should never have given up in Wired.

5. And as long as we’re making lists, here are 10 reasons your novel won’ t get published at Terrible Minds. Very funny. (Hat tip: There Are No Rules)

6. This is beautiful. It’s a short video called “A Year In 90 Seconds” that takes you through the seasons by Norwegian media consultant Eirik Solheim. (Hat tip: Very Short List)

7. Finally, here’s my post in Politics Daily about Pastor Terry Jones (of Koran-burning fame) being banned from the U.K.

Have a great weekend!

    Thanks for this!

    Pastor Who? Of what? Kudos to the Security Chief who did not welcome him to the UK dinner table.
    And hats off to Tiger Dad!
