Weekend Reading: In a Funk Edition

I've been in a bit of a funk this week. Or maybe, I've been in a bit of fog and that put me in the funk. It was a busy week, and I haven't been sleeping well and I just didn't feel very sharp, which make work more challenging than usual.

But no matter! It is the weekend, and a long weekend at that. I kicked it off with a nice rollerblade by the bay. It was a bit warmer than perfect, but not too bad, and there was a nice enough breeze.

On to the links. I don't have many - see above about the fog/funk/general busy-ness - but here's what I have:

The latest Annorlunda book, The Boy Who Was Mistaken for a Fairy King, is ready for pre-order!

The Grumpies had a good post about getting started with personal finance. The comments section was particularly useful for me - Bogart has some good reading for me to do as I try to figure out how much money to save for retirement and how to factor in the chance I might live longer than average.

I miss Stochastic Planet, but GlobeGenie is the same sort of fun.

Vanessa Fogg reviewed a book that sounds really, really interesting.

I enjoyed Ezra Klein's conversation with Jia Tolentino.

OK, I know I am anthropomorphizing... but this bunny is an adorable fluffy ball of grump:

That's all I have this week. Happy weekend!
