Critical Linking: The Most Read Stories, October 15 – 21, 2012

Here are the most read stories from the last week in Critical Linking….

“The next thing I publish is likely to be a book for children.”

And, Oprah, can you imagine curling up in bed to read a computer? Weeping for Anna Karenina and being terrified by Hannibal Lecter, entering the heart of darkness with Mistah Kurtz, having Holden Caulfield ring you up — some things should happen on soft pages, not cold metal.

Oh Harper Lee, you make a silly argument so beautifully.

Margaret Atwood, badass.

We are announcing this morning an important development at Newsweek and The Daily Beast. Newsweek will transition to an all-digital format in early 2013. As part of this transition, the last print edition in the United States will be our Dec. 31 issue.

Another one bytes the dust.

Evans’ latest book details her life as a Christian wife and her attempts to adhere to the teachings of the Bible in as literal a way as possible. In the book, Evans outlines the details of her experiment, from making her own clothes and abstaining from gossip to remaining silent during church services and even pitching and living in a tent in her yard during her menstrual period. 

I’m actually kinda shocked that she had the nerve to use the word “vagina” at all.
