ROUNDUP POST 8: SLACKERS WILL INHERIT THE EARTH

 

…because the workaholics will all be dead from strokes and aneurysms.

Yeah, so it’s about quality, not quantity this time. Variety, too.  I didn’t post as much, but the stuff I did post was actual stuff and not a lot of quiz wank.  Then as I was compiling the links, I was pleasantly surprised at how much variety was in this last batch.  It’s always nice when you can impress yourself.

I started three different series in this last batch of posts! 

  1. MY BOOK HOUSE — a series of twelve volumes that compiles an awe-inspiring collection of literature tailored to children at various stages of intellectual development.  Epic!  Try eBay to find a set.
  2. Professional journals — I offer my commentary on which English journals are good and not so good.
  3. Soccer books — If you’re a sucker for insider information, not so much stats, these are really good anecdotal stories.

New series introductory posts:

 Writing about soccer was extra fun this summer with the USMNT reaching the finals of both the Copa de Oro and Confederations Cup! GO TEAM USA! (Carlos Bocanegra is really hot, btw.)  Russell Brand is a bloody good columnist.  He’s going to host the VMAs again this year.  Yay!

 Bit o’romance.  The romance novel market is disgustingly glutted with poor writing and disastrous editing.  I’m a very picky shopper in this area and that’s to your advantage.  I’m not a typical romance novel fan.  I’m too sane.
