I recently asked her what she was reading. Her reply:
Alas, I do so much blog and periodical reading on a daily basis I have little time for longer works right now, even though so many interesting ones come into the office on a daily basis that I could happily fill my days with nothing but reading them. I do most of my blog reading these days on an RSS feeder, NetNewswire. This allows me to scan 36 domestic politics blogs, 4 American newspapers, 2 Israeli papers, 11 foreign policy blogs, 9 media blogs, and 2 blogs on women's issues. I check in with different parts of my feed anywhere between once every few days to once an hour. Additionally, I read two to three other papers online with some irregularity, and check in with half a dozen magazines and dozens of other blogs on politics, design, and society at least once a week.Visit Garance Franke-Ruta's website, theGarance.com, and The American Prospect.
In terms of books, right now I am looking forward to reading my colleague Tara McKelvey's Monstering: Inside America's Policy of Secret Interrogations and Torture in the Terror War, which I've just begun. Also on the bedside table are Anthony Shadid's Night Draws Near: Iraq's People in the Shadow of America's War and The Caged Virgin: An Emancipation Proclamation for Women and Islam by Ayaan Hirsi Ali.
