Weekend A La Carte (5/5)

You Belong to Christ - I appreciate what Luma gets at in this article about motherhood. “I am NOT anti-motherhood, I am for Christ-centered motherhood! It is because I have lived at the two extremes of neglecting family, and making family my idol, that I can say some of the hard things I’m going to say. God willing with a gracious spirit speaking the truth in love.”

The Campus Tsunami - “What happened to the newspaper and magazine business is about to happen to higher education: a rescrambling around the Web.”

Read More Fiction - Here, from The Art of Manliness, is an explanation of why men ought to read more fiction. I don’t know that I buy all of it, but there are some good points there.

How’s Your Mongolian? - This is an interesting post that introduces quite a unique blog.

Most Read Books - Here’s an infographic displaying the top ten most read books in the world over the last 50 years.

Gritty NYC - “Almost a million images of New York and its municipal operations have been made public for the first time on the internet. The city’s Department of Records officially announced the debut of the photo database. Here are a few highlights.”

Will - This is a powerful little movie. It is beautifully animated as well.
