Props to Fu and Hoda (earlier) for hooking me up some good reads. If you have an article, book, or something else you think I'd like to read, leave a comment and I'll check it out. In the future I'll maybe start posting links to the many blogs that I read and the books I've been reading, but right now I think I'm gonna take a nap and think about dinner.
