Interesting Reads | 4.26.2013

I know it’s cliched, but can you believe it’s the end of April? Like, really, the end of April! In Minnesota the snow is just now melting. It’s really been a crazy month with Claire’s birthday, our quick move that started a week ago on Wednesday, and about three snowstorms that dumped up to two feet of snow on us. Listen, I’m ready to be outside! And to blog again.

While I haven’t had time to blog, I have had time to read a few interesting articles. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have!

A Cat-Hater’s Handbook: Irreverent Vintage Gem Illustrated by Tomi Ungerer by Maria Popova
Brain  Pickings

I am not a cat lover by any means, so the topic of this post is appealing to me. But, beyond that, it’s a really funny look into the cat-hating thoughst of Mark Twain, Shel Silverstein, Ogden Nash and more.

Say it Out Loud: How David Sedaris Makes his Writing Better by Kristin Hohenadel
Fast Co. Create

I love insights into how writers write. This is a great look into how David Sedaris writes and edits for maximum laughs. The best part is that it’s not the typical read-out-loud advice!

My So-Called ‘Post-Feminist’ Life in Arts and Letters by Deborah Copaken Kogan
The Nation

There’s no way around it; if you’re a book-loving woman, this will piss you off.

Have you read anything interesting lately?

For those who’ve feared that I would never return, I promise you that I’ll be back on Monday with my planned reading post, Wednesday with a book chat post and Friday with what I’ve watched (hint: it’s not much!).
