I don’t know about you, but it’s been a long week for me. Make that a long two weeks. Too many trips to the E.R. Too many days with disrupted schedules. Too many professional frustrations. And not enough time to read. Today, Saturday, I’m looking forward to a day filled with mostly reading (and writing).  If that’s you, whether you’ve had a long week or not, below are some links to help fill out your reading schedule for this weekend.

This past week has been dominated by news and stories about Brett Kavanaugh. If you’re like me, you’re tired of reading about it. In fact, I strongly considered muting on Twitter any words associated with the Kavanaugh hearings, allegations, and investigations. I didn’t, of course; as a writer, I kind of can’t. Thankfully, there were interesting articles published this week that had little to nothing to do with Kavanaugh. Below are some of the articles I found the most interesting and/or edifying from this past week.

The weekend has already descended, but that doesn’t mean that at some point over the next day and a half you won’t be longing for something interesting to read. And that’s the purpose of this post. Over the last week, I’ve compiled some of the most interesting and/or edifying posts and articles that I’ve read. Not all of them were published this past week, but I was first introduced to them this past week. Hopefully, you’ll be introduced to an article or two that you find interesting.

Time to restart this series that I blatantly stole from Tim Challies. To be fair, Challies didn’t invent the idea of aggregate sites and posts (maybe he did, I don’t know, I didn’t research it). Regardless, when I was posting these over a year ago, people seemed to like ’em. So, I’ll give it another shot.

Below are links to blog posts and articles from the past week that I’ve found interesting and/or edifying. The weekend is coming, maybe you’ll find some reading material among the links.

I freely and happily admit that I have cribbed this idea from many other writers and bloggers. So be it. A good idea is a good idea, right? There is so much content vying for our attention on the internet, it’s often hard to find the diamond in the rough, so to speak. Although, there are plenty of diamonds hidden throughout the interwebs. That fact means that aggregate sites are useful, and websites and blogs that devote articles and posts to serving as an aggregate for interesting and/or useful content are likewise useful. While I have next to zero desire for this blog to become an aggregate site, or even provide daily posts that offer some help to my friends and readers uncovering some diamonds that they may have missed, a weekly post seems fun for me and possibly profitable for others.

Below, are several of the more interesting articles and blog posts that I read over the last week. Enjoy.
