Thirteen reasons why you should read Wide Sargasso Sea by Jean Rhys.
Neocons on a cruise. Johann Hari, in The Independent, sets sail with America’s swashbuckling neocons:
From time to time, National Review – the bible of American conservatism – organises a cruise for its readers. I paid $1,200 to join them. The rules I imposed on myself were simple: If any of the conservative cruisers asked who I was, I answered honestly, telling them I was a journalist. Mostly, I just tried to blend in – and find out what American conservatives say when they think the rest of us aren’t listening.
This sounds like an interesting read; Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert. The story of a woman who decided to reverse the assumptions and choices in her life and become someone closer to the person she wanted to be. Starting off by eating her way around Rome . . .
