My favorite finds from around the web:
• The plot twist: e-book sales slip, and print is far from dead. “E-books’ declining popularity may signal that publishing, while not immune to technological upheaval, will weather the tidal wave of digital technology better than other forms of media, like music and television.”
• 10 types of odd friendships you’re probably part of. The non-question-asking friend, the friend you can’t be alone with under any circumstances, the Does This Friendship Make Sense graph. Good stuff. (Some language.)
• The sky is (not) falling, or six things I’ve learned about the seasons of life. “You know who you are. A change in seasons doesn’t require a change in identity.”
• How do you grieve a friendship when you never wanted it to die? “What I see now is that I’m not sure I could have ever lived up to her expectations. What I also see is that I wanted more to impress her than to be her friend.”
