Blogs and productivity

Here's the thing about having a blob. I have two deadlines today, but I am here instead, writing about them instead of writing the actual pieces. I am an ass. I really need to get a job.

I also am looking to expand my nonfiction reading. Memoir, arcane and trivial histories and well-written books on architecture and urban planning will all be heartily embraced. Recommend away.

Beyond the recent ones recommended at my blog, I loved Truman by David Mccullough for biography. Even better, The Fifties by David Halberstam.

I think I read part of The Fifties for a class, but it would be worth finding again.

I really think very highly of Anne Sexton: A Biography. I don't read much in the way of non-fiction, unless it's in bite-sized magazine pieces.
