Starting with this weekend, I will try to post two or three “recommended readings” every Friday. The theme will reflect that of this blog’s, that is to say there will be no particular theme. Just stuff from all over the place that I have read and liked (I will not recommend something I have not read myself.) These will be essays/articles/poems/blog entries that have struck my own idiosyncratic fancy and you are at liberty to read them or not -they do come highly recommended however.
So how is this any different from my usual posts (that mostly bear links to other readings too)? The answer is, they will not be accompanied by my usually excessive and long-winded extrapolation and commentary. Just for you to read. Maybe through the comments section you can share your thoughts, though with so many lurkers I highly doubt that.
So on to the first weekend’s readings:
- George Orwell’s 1946 “Politics and the English Language” -A must read for any blogger.
- A delightful read from Zuleikha Mahmoud, courtesy of Sex and the Umma blog: “lesbo goes to muslim bridal shower“
