Thought I’d share a one or two word opinion of a few recently read items…

On Photography (Susan Sontag)


Smart, fascinating look at photography in a social context. Nice change of pace from the usual gadget chatter.

Marley and Me (John Grogan)


Funny and touching story taking place over 13 years between a man and his dog. I cried like a baby at the end. Honest.

Consider the Lobster (David Foster Wallace)


The always-smarter-than-you-and-everyone-you-know DFW writes a series of essays ranging from the porn industry to John McCain to Lobster festivals. My favorite is a piece about “_A Dictionary of Modern English Usage_” in which he discusses (at great length) “proper” english usage and who gets to decide its, uh, properness.
