In 2013, read 365 books and find out how many slaves work for you.

And other links to things that caught my attention* this week:

Interview with Frederick Buechner at Princeton Alumni Weekly: ‘Pay Attention to Your Life’

“At Coffee Training Camp, Learning to Make the Perfect Cup” Matt Richtel at the NYT

“Can you trust Dr. Oz? His medical advice often conflicts with the best science.”                                        at Slate (hmm…isn’t he one of the gurus for Rick Warren’s Daniel Plan?)

“I made a resolution to read a book a day in 2012. In 2013, you can too.”
Jeff Ryan at Slate

“How Many Slaves Work for You?” Lois Masur at NYT (& take the disturbing test at

And a quote for the week/end to ponder:

“most of us are raised to be somebodies and what a no-win game that is to buy into, because while you may turn out to be much more somebody than somebody else, a lot of other people are going to be a lot more somebody than you. And you are going to drive yourself crazy.”

(Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird)

    1. Me too. I’m thinking of adding something similar to every post I write, but mine will be disclaiming that just because I wrote something doesn’t mean I necessarily agree with it!
