Things to Read
Slate has been running a series this week about pulp fiction -- not the movie, but the literary genre. So, if you're in the market for some beach reading, check out what some of your favorite authors recommend. As an aside, I enjoy Michael Chabon's books, but why does it not surprise me that he comes across as smug? And I love that Michael Kinsley is recommending Evelyn Waugh and Trollope.
For those of you who do not like to stray too far from your computers, The Morning News has its annual list of Web sites to check out.
