Learning to Read

Volume 6, Issue 18; 19 May 2003

Samuel Butler

Update: 31 Aug 2004

I put the old, stale list back because it’s historically honest and because I’ve replaced this page with something more useful.

Update: 23 Mar 2004

The list on this page had grown horribly stale. Some time ago, I switched to Bloglines as my aggregator. The easiest way to share what I read is to make my blogs public. It’s not all that well organized, but at least it’s up to date.

The Original Essay

Since I became interested in writing in this medium, I've become more interested in reading it. This page is a list of the feeds I read. Or try to. My reader of choice isn't working too well these days and I've spent my last few days of free time hacking this site together instead of fixing it.
