Friday Links

I know everyone already heard this song, which means I have no hipster cred when I include it, but whatever.  I like it.


  1.  Really interesting piece on what I do for work (just not in the retail sector), or How Target figures out you’re pregnant before you do.
  2. Suleiman Kerimov, the secret oligarch
  3. Learning Hebrew while Muslim
  4. Police composites of literary characters
  5. The worst cover letter ever (but the best one to read)
  6. All the books in the world…except one
  7. Dirty love letters by famous authors
  8. Australian interview with Saudi women who want to drive
  9. Israeli stores: now with blurry women!
  10. How to be of the world instead of just in the world

  1. I really liked the first article.

    I am curious — did you get a catalogue advertising “magical” clothes and accessories after purchasing The Magicians? I got it for the 3rd or 4th time already, and I think each time it happened after a purchase of a fantasy book for my Kindle.

    1. I don’t remember that, but I’ve noticed ads for specific furniture from CB2 in completely random webpages or my Gmail after I’ve gone to their site. It is both interesting and scary for me.
