A peek at what I’ve been reading on the interwebs:
- All subway maps should look like this (Thrillist).
- In order to ensure that I have ample time to read, I may need to commit a felony (The New Yorker)
- Attention all my newly engaged/married/pregnant friends: New York City is a great place to raise children! (read: Please don’t move to the suburbs and leave me!! I will babysit!!!) (Time Out New York Kids)
- There are a few places that you can go to be alone in public in New York City. Let’s just keep that info between us…and all the people who read Gothamist.
- An interesting piece on reading the work of authors with whom you may philosophically disagree. I had this problem when I tried to reread the work of Kate Chopin earlier this spring. I hadn’t read the introduction to the collection of her novella and short stories during my first encounter with her work, and totally missed that she had some complicated, mostly backward ideas about race. Going into her work with that knowledge really changed how I viewed her work, and brought up some conflicting feelings. More on that soon…(Book Riot)
