For nearly a year now, every Thursday I've featured a bookish photograph -- sometimes of a posh library in someone's home, sometimes of a bookstore, sometimes of an unusual bookcase -- but I've recently happened upon a site, courtesy of Twitter, that gathers many more such intriguing photos: bookshelfporn.com. It's terrific, and I think you'll enjoy it. Add it to your bookmarks!
For the foreseeable future, I'm going to focus on a different topic on Thursdays. I've noticed in my blog stats that my page views hit the roof every time I discuss my career as a divorce lawyer, and that those posts generate a significantly greater number of comments, emails, etc. I get similar results on Twitter. I'm a bit bemused by this, as I make no bones about the fact that I am at best ambivalent about my work. (Let's be honest: I hate it.) However, the stats don't lie -- YOU are obviously interested in it. So, each Thursday I will feature a vignette -- a story from the front lines, as it were -- from my practice. Don't get too excited: There will be no celebrity name-dropping, identities will be masked to protect the guilty, and no confidential information will be revealed. But it will be amusing. Or informative. Or a tad frightening. Or perhaps all three. Please do check in next Thursday.
