TED Talks and Literature

I now subscribe to the Book Riot newsletter. There’s a lot of greet information there. One thing that caught my eye was the recent October 6th article “The Best Literary TED Talks of 2014.” I’ve only listened and watched Isabel Allende’s so far, but they all look interesting.

The piece inspired me to subscribe to TED Talks themselves. To listen thoughtfully, once a day is best, so even though they are brief, once a day probably works out the best for most people. I like them because of the diversity of subject matter and speakers. And you learn a lot. Whether you’re a journalist researching a story,  a student working on a research paper, or someone who’s just plain curious, the talks are worthwhile.

I look forward to one coming in my ie-mail inbox each day. On Saturdays and Sundays, classic TED Talks arrive. Unless there’s a deadline, you don’t have to be in a hurry to finish.
