One last, long weekend before we dive full-speed into school and co-op classes and swim lessons and karate and art lessons and…well, this may be my last chance to catch up on the backlog in my Bloglines folders.
With over 100 feeds, there is no way I will keep up with all of you during the school year. So here is my end-of-summer fling, a sort of unofficial “Best of (my) Bloglines” carnival, in which I share my personal favorites from the last few weeks of RSS.
I hope you enjoy these posts as much as I have.

High school and beyond

Do librarians get tired of us making so much work for them? I have been adding to my library loan list again.
Nick lists 100 Recommended Science Fiction and Fantasy Books for Junior High Students, which includes many of my old favorites as well as some I have never read.
And here is just the gadget I need to help me read all those books while
playing homemaker multitasking.
Talking About Taboo Topics
I avoid talking about politics and religion on this blog. I have strong opinions but no expertise—and there is more than enough opinionated blathering on the Internet. But here are some people who (in my opinion) get it right.
Did you know that the game of Checkers has been solved?
