**** The new Weekend Assignment is from a “guest professor” once again (not me this time), and I’m mentioning it because I know it’s one that some of y’all could easily get into:
Extra Credit: What was the last book you read, and why?
Answer the question(s) in a post on your own blog, and leave a link to it in the comments on the Assignment post at Outpost Mâvarin!
**** The links are a little sparse this week due to Google Reader Backlog. I hope to remedy that situation next week.
Just a few of many posts this week reflecting on the making of history (even history that may have to wait a few years), including one from pop-culture history; one about continuing to make history; a recipe for history; a couple of letters; and one about being so preoccupied with documenting history that you miss the chance to experience it
Signs that you’re a blogging geriatric – have you exhibited any?
If you actually need to follow more people on Twitter, try some of The Park Bench‘s “nerd all-stars.” Also, how much do you care about your blog stats? (My answer – probably TOO much. My subscriber number has dropped by about half this week; I know there are some behind-the-scenes things happening to integrate FeedBurner and Google, and I hope that it’s a glitch related to that!)
Books that caught my eye this week:
Traffic: Why We Drive the Way We Do (And What is Says About Us), by Tom Vanderbilt (via DearReader.com)
The Sinner’s Guide to Confession, by Phyllis Scheiber
Have a great weekend!
