*A fascinating graphic on Amazon's success (definitely worth a view).
*A beginner's guide to Alice Munro.
*10 Fascinating Documentaries about the 1 Percent. I really want to see the Queen of Versailles.
*Samm Blake. Wow. Amazing photos. Amazing.
*F. Scott on writing. Here's an excerpt, but the whole thing is really worth reading - "I've read the story carefully and, Frances, I'm afraid the price for doing professional work is a good deal higher than you are prepared to pay at present. You've got to sell your heart, your strongest reactions, not the little minor things that only touch you lightly, the little experiences that you might tell at dinner. This is especially true when you begin to write, when you have not yet developed the tricks of interesting people on paper, when you have none of the technique which it takes time to learn. When, in short, you have only your emotions to sell."
*Daily Candy's favorite online children's boutiques.
Play All Day and a jar full of pop-beads = hours of entertainment back at the condo.
