Saturday Good Reads

This list ends one year but starts a new year. The first time I published this list was on March 6, 2010, and I called it “Virtual Good Reads.” A week later, the title had become “Saturday Good Reads” and a weekly feature was born.

It’s one of my favorite things to blog. There’s so much good stuff on the internet to share, and I can’t include everything each week because the list would be huge. But there is a lot of fine writing out there, and the posts belong are a few from last week.
