I’ve just returned from a vacation in Las Vegas where I didn’t read a thing. Not a book, magazine, newspaper, or e-mail. My partner and I commented that we felt like we had been on a media fast, and though it felt great at the time, I was immediately drawn to our shelf of new books, upon my return to work. Here’s what caught my eye today:
The Pleasures of Reading in an Age of Distraction, by Alan Jacobs
Who Are We – And Should it Matter in the Twenty-first Century? by Gary Younge
The Steal: A Cultural History of Shoplifting, by Rachel Shteir
