Friday Reads

A New Mantra for Moms: I am the Standard takes a look at the guilt and shame mothers project and suggests we work on changing our self-image. Is this possible?

I’m a big fan of audiobooks, as is the author of Audiobooks and the Return of Storytelling. I’ve found that a terrible reader makes a book indigestible and I will inevitably abandon the book no matter how intriguing the story, hoping to pick up the print version at the library. I really enjoy autobiographies read by their author: Mindy Kaling, Tina Fey and Andy Cohen are all great writers/readers.

Uber Cab Confessions is a behind-the-scenes look at the newish Uber car service, that allows anyone to order a car to take them where they want to go. It’s like a cab service, only faster and easier. Just don’t forget the driver is listening and watching.

Super nerdy and super interesting if you’ve ever wondered why you have a 10-digit phone number is Our Numbered Days: The Evolution of the Area Code.
