Not The Best Week

Certainly, in terms of reading it was a sub par performance on my part. I attribute this to Manchester United's comeback victory on Tuesday, my pair of visits to see my sister in the hospital and the return of hospitable weather to our region. I am about 200 pages into both Balzac's Lost Illusions and Patrick White's The Vivisector.

Mahfouz is obviously on my mind these days. It would be interesting to see how many people have picked up his work in the last few days.

Dear Blogger,

Ever wonder what other bloggers are thinking? Curious about how your thoughts compare to other bloggers' views on topics like politics, parenting, and prestige?

I'm writing from Blogging Common, a research project at the Berkman Center for Internet & Society and Harvard University. We'd like to ask you to help us by joining a panel of active bloggers. Your involvement in this panel will help us answer important questions about the practices and opinions of bloggers around the globe.

What's in it for you? First access to our results, so you can see how you stack up to bloggers around the world. You'll also have the satisfaction of knowing you're part of an awesome research project at Harvard.

It takes ten minutes to answer our first set of questions. With your permission, we'll send you new short surveys on different topics several times over the next year. We promise not to share your personal information with anyone, and we'll do our best to make this exciting. To complete the survey, please visit the following link:

We hope you'll join us,
