Blogs: The Book
When I started this blog, I never imagined that the silly things I post here might one day end up in a printed anthology alongside writing by Nobel Prize winner Gary Becker, federal judge Richard Posner, and the New Yorker’s Alex Ross. But we all have blogs which, along with 24 others, have been anthologized in a new book out this week called Ultimate Blogs: Masterworks From the Wild Web compiled by former New York Times reporter Sarah Boxer. I’m flattered!
The printed page might seem like an odd way to read blogs, but the compilation actually makes for good reading. And the fact that the book features relatively short entries that can be read in any order makes it an excellent bathroom book. (I mean that in a good way.)
Note: Sarah Boxer selected the posts that she feels work best in her compilation. But they aren’t necessarily my favorite posts from my blog. I do maintain a “Favorites” list that can be found among the Categories list in the sidebar, or by clicking here.
