Return of Reviewerspeak & Margaret Atwood, Twitter Champion

Three quick points for your Tuesday:

1. The Reviewerspeak Awards have returned!

Let it not be said that Michelle Kerns’s nitpickery has not produced tangible good. She seems to have squashed New York Times critic Michiko Kakutani’s predilection for the word “limn.”

Also, Kerns explains her hiatus:

“Hell, I was sick unto death of the whole thing ... And I realized that reading all of those reviews each month prevented me from occasionally doing some really quality things with my time. Like eating. And sleeping.”

2. A Canadian man has been arrested for reading while driving.

The article doesn’t address the important question. What was he reading?

3. HTMLGiant proclaims Margaret Atwood a Twitter Champion. (What does that make Colson Whitehead, a Twitter Grandmaster?)
