The Best Friends Character, and Animal Farm

If there are any Friends fans out there, you might enjoy my recent article for Headstuff, “It’s Official: Ross is the Best Friends Character” …if you like Ross, that is. But even if you don’t, you have to admit that his velociraptor impression is a thing of beauty.

In book news, I read Animal Farm last week and was surprised to find it thoroughly fascinating. I was actually a little sad when it ended abruptly at the 70% mark on my Kindle. (Usually I do a little dance and celebrate with some sort of baked good when I finish a classic.)

Animal Farm is suuuper short and very easy to read, so you’d only need to set aside a few hours to get through it. For anyone unfamiliar with the book, it’s George Orwell’s pastoral allegory describing the events before and after the Russian Revolution of 1917. And even for someone like me, with so little interest in politics that, for all intents and purposes, we might as well call it NONE, Animal Farm is completely absorbing.

Anyway, whatever book you’re tackling this week, happy reading!
