The Guardian posted a couple of great articles which would be great to share with customers through Facebook or Twitter.
- The author of “What Books Make You Feel Stupid” says, “As a blogger on ‘the perils of feeling dumb while reading’ bravely cites Neil Gaiman’s American Gods, perhaps it’s time for us all to own up to the books we’re ashamed not to love.”
- And in a piece titled “The internet isn’t harming our love of ‘deep reading’, it’s cultivating it,” Steven Poole contends that “lengthy pieces of writing are increasingly found on the very internet that pessimists blame for turning us into skim readers.”
Earlier this week, we covered new design changes to the Twitter profile page, and if you’re curious about “why” and “how” Twitter decided to change their look, Wired posted “The Design Thinking Behind Twitter’s Revamped Profiles.”
The Algonquin Books Blog post, “Sense of Place: Writers at Work,” states, “Anyone who spends hours at a time holed up inside his or her imagination knows that where we work can be vital to what we create. Our workspace anchors us to the real world and helps keep us going when the words won’t flow.” In this post they feature the work space of Krista Bremer, author of My Accidental Jihad: A Love Story, which will be released on April 22, 2014.
I love photos of offices and work spaces about as much as #shelfies. In a way, it almost feels more exposed. So, allowing no time for tidying, I decided to take a photo of my desk. I’d love to see your work spaces, too. If you dare, take a candid photo of your desk, and post it with the hashtag #workexposed. Be sure to mention @BooksAndWhatnot so I can see them! (Come on. It’s Friday.)
