setting snarky aside: go read a book

I was all set to write a snarky post about how Blogger created youtube videos to explain how to set up a blog. Just typing that bugs me because it's so un-ironically stupid, but it's a personal issue of mine (the inability to create a blog should be some kind of idiot filter). However...

I was distracted by this fun blog about people reading. My favorite entry? The one for Paws Off, Cheddarface. Because reading is good for you.

What I'm reading right now: A Short History of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson. This is my third or fourth time through the book. There's so much in it that you can read it every 6 months and still find something new, or remind yourself of something you already knew. Short History is like Blink and The Tipping Point in that they are excellent introductory / gateway books. As in, books that lead you to other good books.
