Friday Pix: Recommended Reading For The Weekend

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

1. I always love reading Katy Keim’s suggestions over at Book Snob. This week, she had a terrific post on why we all need to read that “Great American Novel” Freedom by Jonathan Franzen.

2.¬† What would Ayn Rand do? Here’s some deliciously wry child-rearing advice from Eric Hague over at McSweeneys.

3. If you’re in need of a laugh, have a look at The Onion’s spot on the new, FDA-approved depressant drug for the Annoyingly Cheerful.

4. Also sure to bring a smile is Alex Beam’s rant against (pretty much all) drivers in The Boston Globe.

5. Bibliophiles will adore¬† Save The Words, a website that allows you to adopt words that risk being dropped from the English language. (Snollygoster, anyone?) (Hat tip: Mary Murphy’s Reading blog)

6. Finally, for those who are interested, here’s a post I did earlier this week for Politics Daily on 10 Reasons To Lift The Cuba Embargo.

I will be doing a staycation in London next week with the kids. I’ll see you all on the other side of August (sometimes known as September!)
