Reading List

I started this blog with the intention of commenting on everything I read — but it hasn’t quite turned out that way. There’s too much good (and bad) writing out there to offer my two cents about all of it, and by now it’s obvious that brevity is not my strong suit. More often than not, I end up writing about politics, almost in spite of myself. I didn’t set out to be another left-wing rambler, but I’m new-agey enough to figure I might as well embrace my true colors. That said, all the “Best of 2011” lists that popped up on sites like Longreads and Byliner (The New Republic even ran a “Most Overlooked Stories” compilation for those opposed to year-end listicles in the first place) made me wonder which stories would make my top 10. The favorites I came up with were weighted heavily toward the second half of the year; I’m sure I read great things last January, but I’ll be darned if I can remember them. In preparation for my own “Best of 2012,” I’ve resolved to keep a log of each day’s most interesting piece of journalism. (Or roughly each day. Under-promise, over-deliver, right?) See the menu at the right for each month’s collection.
