Just two links this Friday, and they’re both writing-ish. You don’t have to click either of them, but then, you don’t have to wear clothes in public, and you do that. (Presumably.) So, you know, ipso facto, QED.
Amidst all the gloomy prophecies of the End of the Book, it’s good to see a study suggest – for once – that Americans are actually reading more. The article says specifically “more literature,” and they apparently define literature as “novels and short stories, plays, or poems.” The article goes on to mention that “Cultural decline is not inevitable.” Fingers crossed!
And from Veronica Roth, a good post about the gift of upheaval, the growth that comes from difficult change.
Them’s the links. As for me, I finished Cory Doctorow’s Little Brother and now I’m on to The Screwtape Letters by C. S. Lewis. So far it’s pretty prodigious.
What are y’all up to this weekend?
