Friday Varia and Quick Hits

It’s almost Christmastime here in North Dakotaland. The last papers are trickling in, grades are due early next week, and most of us are looking forward to a few days off – Christmas or otherwise – between the semesters. There will be test cricket (provided that it’s not too hot! and the pitch is safe), basketball, a novel to finish, a book to layout, some college football, and an article and a conference paper to polish up. I’ve also promised the dogs a long walk, some phone calls with family, and a few new TV series to watch. In other words, a proper holiday.

Before I present some quick hits and varia, though, I do have a couple little advertisements. If it helps, imagine me reading these in olde tyme radio voice. First, if you’re look for a stocking stuffer, consider a book from The Digital Press at the University of North Dakota. If you’re not quite sure, though, you can always download for free a four pack, check the books out, and if they make you or someone you know happy, buy one! Here’s the link! 

If a book feels like too much of an intellectual commitment, then maybe a subscription to North Dakota Quarterly would be the perfect thing for the reader in your life? If you’re not sure, check out our blog!

But now, back to our scheduled programing and do enjoy the featured quick hits and varia:
