On Americans Have Either Stopped Reading Books or Stopped Lying About It

@Ideal Impulse maybe something by Mary Roach? She writes great pop-science nonfiction... I find that her books are easy to read, and chapters can more or less stand on their own (basically just collections of "check out all these weird facts I found out about ____!") She's written books about sex (Bonk), the digestive system (Gulp), cadavers (yep) (Stiff), and space travel (Packing for Mars). She is also clearly a weirdo, in a good way.

Any suggestions for resources to find shelters (homeless/domestic violence/whatever) in your area? Are there national/regional organizations that have this information?

On Transatlanticism Demos > New Music from T-Swift, Gaga, Bieber

Transatlanticism! I started back in on a Death Cab for Cutie Pandora station earlier today at work and then looked up like four hours later feeling like I wanted to climb back into bed. Hi, coworkers, don't mind me crying silently at my desk.

On "Why should I wait for someone else?": Malala Talks to Jon Stewart on Her One-Year "Shooting Anniversary"

She's amazing. Really does put things in perspective... and makes me wonder whether or not I would be brave enough to do what she has done.

@SarahP the 10-11th is better for me as well because I think I may be going out of town this weekend but I'm not positive yet!

Relatedly, your dress would bring my entirely sequin covered dress collection to TWO so I definitely will try to make it.
