Week in Review: What I Read

  1. Taking It Slow: Transatlantic: Ever since The Paris Review came to the Summer Publishing Institute I’ve fallen in love with everything that they do. This article about the author’s decision to make a slow transition back to life in the US is no different. It’s somewhere between a “longread” and a blog post — the perfect length for an indulgence. 
  2. Drunk Texts from Famous Authors: This one is also from The Paris Review — Don’t say I didn’t warn you! Deliciously irreverent this more traditional blog post wonders what sorts of things everyone from Emily Dickenson to Dan Brown would send. An essential diversion!
  3. Do Too Many Young People Go to College?: Covering a topic near and dear to my heart this WSJ article explores America’s insistence on over-qualification. Fascinating.
  4. Hermione Granger vs. Bella Swan: This was my fun read for the week! I am and always will be a die-hard Potterhead so anything that pokes fun at the rival books makes me giggle. This chart/post perfectly outlines my problems with the Twilight series while illustrating why I adore J.K. Rowling’s central female character.
