1) Journalist Jon Ronson.
I don't have much time to read "for fun" these days, but so many of my favorite book blogs recommended Jon Ronson's "The Psychopath Test" that I had to see what the hype was all about. For a nonfiction book with such a doom-tastic title, I found it incredibly humorous and thought-provoking, and I inhaled it in three days.
To give you a bit of a taste, here's a quote that has been swimming around in my head:
"There is no evidence that we've been placed on this planet to be especially happy or especially normal. And in fact... our strangeness, our anxieties and compulsions, those least fashionable aspects of our personalities are quite often what lead us to do rather interesting things."
This gorgeous photography website features seriously spine-tingling shots of abandoned spaces of all types. From submarines to movie theaters, these photographers have gotten up close to the eerily gorgeous.
3) Pesto Tofu Scrambles.
After our initial fling at Saturday brunch, I can officially announce that we are in love. I'm not even kidding when I say that this is The Most Delicious Breakfast. I found a great recipe here.
