It’s a beautiful sunny Friday here in Colorado. Today’s link roundup includes a delicious recipe from a modern homesteader and some food for thought as well.
Have you checked out the Tattered Cover’s events lineup this month? I’m already geeking out over George R. R. Martin coming to town, and I still have three weeks to go.
When I lived in Boston, I loved Porter Square Books. They have a great post about supporting your local indie. Despite the fact that I work in publishing, it took the closing of one of my all-time favorite bookstores, The Curious George Bookstore in Harvard Square, for me to wake up to the plight of bookstores. A little more than two months ago, I resolved to never again buy books from Amazon. There was a little sticker shock at first as I adjusted to buying graphic novels at list price, but it was the right choice for me—to spend a little more money to invest in my community and in the future of books.
Native Appropriations was on Al Jazeera! They even aired the “Don’t Tread on My Culture” video made in response to Operation code name Geronimo. Check out the video for a great dialogue on postcolonial appropriation of Native and indigenous culture:

Hope everyone has a great weekend! Happy reading!
