Friday Pix: Recommended Reading For The Weekend

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

1. Mega-blogger Heather Armstrong – aka Dooce – recently separated from her husband. Here, she talks about it on her blog. Very sad, indeed.

2. Equally moving – but more inspirational – is this documentary on Al Jazeera English about a boy from a Palestinian refugee camp who makes it all the way to Eton College. Talk about culture shock!

3. Over on The Daily Telegraph, we’ve got Dickens’s London: In Pictures, a collection of 19th-century photographs which has been published to coincide with the 200th anniversary of the author’s birth. Spectacular.

4. Don’t miss this beautiful You Tube video entitled Speeding Around The World In Under 5 Minutes.

5. And, of course, I couldn’t resist tossing in Sh*t Nobody Says. My own fave?: “Does anyone know how to make papyrus my default font?”

6. Finally, because you should always go out on a bang, please take two minutes of your day and listen to the Peacherine Rag as performed by the St. Luke’s Bottle Band.
