What I’m Reading: Afghanistan, PINK and Google Advertising

I don’t usually write about what I’m reading, but right now my plate is full of awesome randomness. Since I take the bus to and from work, I am trying to take advantage of this time by reading more.

For fiction, I just finished Kite Runner, which is a fantastic book that weaves in historical events in Afghanistan (the ones pre-2001 that most Amerians don’t read about). Recommended reading if only for the fact it gives an interesting insight into the culture…plus it is a pretty good story.

For magzines, I picked up a subscription to PINK Magazine, which is a women’s mag but has some great profiles, such as this one on Playboy president, Christie Hefner.

For online stuff, Tech Crunch has an interesting analysis on what’s up with Google’s new advertising foray: Digesting Google’s New PPA Advertising Product I don’t agree with everything he says – Linkshare and TradeDoubler and CJ will have to adapt but they will always appeal to some parts of the market – but yet again it shows the steps that Google is taking to control the online world.

    You should read the feminist zine called Bitch, whose headquarters are not to far from your house on Alberta now.

    Don’t understand the above comment at all. Sounds terrible.

    I agree, Court, Kiterunner is a powerful book and the only fiction I’ve read in years!
