2019 Popsugar Reading Challenge #27: A cli-fi book

I was drawn in during the first 10 percent of this book, but my enjoyment lessened considerably as the book plodded along. Mitchell Zukor is not who I thought he was going to be. He's a lot less

2019 Popsugar Reading Challenge #25: An "own voices" book

You all realize Angie Thomas just wrote a YA version of Spike Lee's 1989 film, "Do the Right Thing," yes?

There was plenty to like about this book, but you'll never convince me Star and Hailey

As You Wish by Cary Elwes

I love "The Princess Bride," but you learn very little about the production of this movie that is interesting. Instead, Cary spends most of the book praising the brilliance of everyone involved in the production. Compliments have no meaning, because ...more

2019 Popsugar Reading Challenge #19: A book recommended by a celebrity you admire

This book was recommended by Neil Patrick Harris. The premise, as offered by Harris, sounded intriguing so I followed his guidance.

I'm thankful I did, because I enjoyed

“The second analog-era mechanism that encourages serendipity involves the physical limitations of the print newspaper, which forces you to pass by a collection of artfully curated stories on a variety of topics before you open up the section that most closely matches your existing passions and knowledge.”
Steven Johnson, Where Good Ideas Come from: The Natural History of Innovation

Theodore H. White
“Every American election summons the individual voter to weigh the past against the future.”
Theodore H. White, The Making of the President 1960

Theodore H. White
“A genuine primary is a fight within the family of the party - and, like any family fight, is apt to be more bitter and leave more enduring wounds than battle with the November enemy.”
Theodore H. White, The Making of the President 1960

Steven Johnson
“When it first emerged, Twitter was widely derided as a frivolous distraction that was mostly good for telling your friends what you had for breakfast. Now it is being used to organize and share news about the Iranian political protests, to provide customer support for large corporations, to share interesting news items, and a thousand other applications that did not occur to the founders when they dreamed up the service in 2006. This is not just a case of cultural exaptation: people finding a new use for a tool designed to do something else. In Twitter's case, the users have been redesigning the tool itself. The convention of replying to another user with the @ symbol was spontaneously invented by the Twitter user base. Early Twitter users ported over a convention from the IRC messaging platform and began grouping a topic or event by the "hash-tag" as in "#30Rock" or "inauguration." The ability to search a live stream of tweets - which is likely to prove crucial to Twitter's ultimate business model, thanks to its advertising potential - was developed by another start-up altogether. Thanks to these innovations, following a live feed of tweets about an event - political debates or Lost episodes - has become a central part of the Twitter experience. But for the first year of Twitter's existence, that mode of interaction would have been technically impossible using Twitter. It's like inventing a toaster oven and then looking around a year later and discovering that all your customers have, on their own, figured out a way to turn it into a microwave.”
Steven Johnson, Where Good Ideas Come from: The Natural History of Innovation

“The 'smoke-filled room' as political reality is now as dead as Prohibition.”
