The good folks at NPR talk about books a lot. And they know a lot of wise people who also like to talk about books. If you’re looking for something good to read, take a click over to their Books site and let them recommend a good read for you.
The Summer Books Critics Lists offer up recommendations of brand spankin’ new books and older ones too. Historical fiction, classics worth re-reading, romance, thrillers and non-fiction. Definitely something for everyone. Pick a few titles then come over to the library an check them out!

We like the British newspaper The Guardian for many things, not the least of which is their erudite and entertaining book reviews. But now we have something else to enjoy from their website: Satellite Eye On Earth. Each month, The Guardian posts photos of earth captured by NASA and European Space Agency satellites. The photos bring about a whole new appreciation for the fragility of human life on a planet whose surface erupts, breaks apart, blows around, floods and is subject to weather that is unrepentant in its ferocity.

Another architecture/design website but this one’s for laughs. The Unhappy Hipsters takes photos from leading design magazines like Dwell and adds a wry comment pointing out the unfriendliness in the bankrupt design–in human terms. We don’t know who posts on this blog but he/she has an amusing avatar. If you, too, believe there is something missing from the minimal design themes so rampant in magazine spreads these days, take a glance at this website and have a laugh or two. And wait with the rest of us for the pendulum to swing back to human friendly.
Thanks to Curt Cox from the Davis Partnership in Denver for sending us the link.
