Time for a round of weekly links.
Let me start with Baz Luhrmann’s ‘The Great Gatsby.’ Apart from movie critics lamenting and praising the garishness of the sets with equal fervor, we have fresh reviews of the literary work. The slim American classic is up for scrutiny. The best piece on Fitzgerald and his creation come from NY Mag’s Kathryn Schulz, Why I Despise The Great Gatsby.
Shopping for groceries this weekend? Yes, of course. Then read this before you go.
If you have a few minutes to spare, check out the Ten Commandments of Teaching by Bertrand Russell. My favorite is “Never try to discourage thinking for you will always succeed.” For the rest, click here.
Lastly, if you have a kid in your life, you will bookmark this book review website. Warning – you will find yourself with a pretty long list on your next visit to Barnes and Noble.
Have a good weekend, everyone!
