Arts & Letters Daily

So, the first thing I want to confess is that I got lost in this site for an hour and a half just reading articles. I’ve learned about Robespierre, Feminism, Asparagus and Harry Houdini; just to mention a few of the articles I’ve browsed or fully read here.

Navigation is pretty easy. There is a side menu and there are the featured articles on the main page. The articles on the main page are divided into three categories: Articles, New Books and Essays and Opinions.

The side menu continues all the way down the page and it is filled with so much content that it would be daunting to list all of it here. You’ll find Breaking News, Web Blogs, Favorites, Radio News/Music and Book Reviews. That’s just a few of them.

I think this site just peppers your mind with thought provoking articles and ideas. It makes you want to learn more, to form an opinion and it makes you want to discuss it with the people in your life.

If you like the articles you’ve read and find yourself hungering for more (I know I was!), scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page and in the fine print, you can find the links to the archives from 1998 to 2006.

You can also find the Help link all the way down there, which deals with issues such as the print being too small or the page being behind and not updated. That’s pretty helpful stuff tucked all the way at the bottom of the page, so keep an eye out for them!

Well, I’m off to read more of these articles. Enjoy!
