  • We Need Bodice-Ripper Sex Ed
    Jennifer Weiner on the benefits of reading Harlequin novels: "But those [Harlequin romance novels], for all their soft-core covers and happily-ever-afters, were quietly and not-so-quietly subversive. They taught readers that sexual pleasure was something women could not just hope for but insist upon. They shaped my interactions with boys and men. They helped make me a feminist." Side note: Asking the New York Times website for this page (just the html page) yields a giant heap of garbage (317K, mostly javascript). The article itself is about 7.4K of text.

  • Advanced Degrees in Digital Humanities
    Not a bad list. Does mislead by conflating 4-year European Masters programs with 1-year US American Masters programs. German PhD programs are missing.
  • 30 Days of Stuff
    Post on the Internet Archive's blog by Jason Scott. Examples of wonderful public domain books and magazines available at IA.
  • The latch key of my bookhouse
    1922 book notable for being a "test vector" for the Internet Archive's book digitization process.
