It’s Friday! I’ve had a busy week, so we’re going lo-fi. My husband Evan, voracious reader and excellent linker, has curated some additional links for you to enjoy.
We only live to serve. Scroll on for a smaller but hopefully interesting as usual set of links!

Here are my 5 Picks for Glasgow Film Festival 2015. So far I’ve seen While We’re Young and Appropriate Behaviour. Both were great.
A video: some book recommendations as part of the “If You Liked This…” tag.
New Bookish Blether! Our podcast continues with Bookish Blether Episode 3 – Our Childhood Favourites plus what we’ve been reading lately, our book club picks, and our introduction to adult (as in grown-up) literature.
On my business blog I reviewed CoSchedule which I use for scheduling social media updates straight from WordPress.

The Education of Alex Rodriguez – You need not be a baseball fan to appreciate this beautifully written profile of a fallen hero. From highest-paid player of all time to arguably the game’s most hated figure, this intimate look at Rodriguez casts the disgraced liar and cheat in a sympathetic light.
King David – There were no shortage of eulogies for beloved journalist David Carr this week, but none as beautiful as this by Ta-Nehisi Coates. Coates writes about his friend, mentor, and champion with the fathomless humanity that is his trademark.
Brother From Another Mother – Comedy duo Key and Peele have become stars thanks not only to their prodigious talent but also their powerful friendship. Acclaimed writer Zadie Smith profiles them, and touches on the themes which make their comedy resonate; alienation, frustration, the liminal existence of being biracial.

Zadie Smith for Rookie on Life Writing – an On Keeping A Notebook of sorts.
How to Have a Good Relationship — With Yourself. Ann Friedman, always.

I’m reading The First Bad Man by Miranda July, and can’t wait to see where it’s going next.
Back to you regularly scheduled linkage next week.
Have a great weekend!
