The TBR List: Reset

Hi friends, sorry it's been so quiet here this week. Sometimes life is more important that blogging. (Whaaaat?) Anyway, things should be back to normal shortly. Ramadan started yesterday so this weekend should be a relatively quiet one as we adjust to new schedules. It's funny — for a time centered around fasting during the day, food can be a huge focus during this month. My goal for this year is to strike a balance between the traditional fried foods I crave as I break my fast (ahem, samosas) and quick, balanced meals that will help me get the nutrients I need. Maybe I'll do a blog post on that. In the meantime, here are some of the best links I found this week. 

- This isn't about food/literature, but Jon Stewart on the Charleston shooting is worth watching.

- A Chrome extension that displays prices at your local bookstore when you browse Amazon. It'd be cool if this came to the U.S.

- The New York Times' Cooking section has a fab collection of Ramadan recipes.

- The FDA is trying to do away with trans fats, but here are some foods that are still full of them.

- Ugh, the phrase "chai tea" drives me nuts. And for good reason.

- Amazon's proposed Kindle Unlimited royalty updates are going to screw authors.

- How Pyrex changed the way we cook.
