    There sure are a lot of defensive white people in the comments on that NPR article (an article that’s not even really directed at them as readers). How dare someone imply they might not be as well-read as they think they are?!

    You mean to tell me that if I read the books the NYT tells me to read, I might NOT be reading the objectively best books out there? Impossible! I am smart and liberal, there can’t possibly be anything wrong with my reading selections.

    The last item had me confused until I read the description and reread the link text. I initially thought it was about the discovery of a marsupial that engaged in suicidal sex when threatened.
