    From the blogosphere



    Somewhere came across the widget from BlogRush, but since it seems in free WordPress blogging you have to use the ones they give you, BlogRush not being amongst them, its now in Moleskine Modality. I’m not so sure its a good idea; every time I load MM it is impossible not to check some of the sites in the panel. But I did come across a lit blog (or blit if you don’t like the hard g) I haven’t seen before: One Minute book Reviews by author Janice Harayda.

    The 24 September 07 post (she writes about the Man Booker prize in 4 posts )

    Dumbing Down the Man Booker Prize — Finalist Lloyd Jones Writes at a Third-Grade Level in ‘Mister Pip,’ Microsoft Word Readability Stats Show

    teaches me something: Word has a gizmo that allows a piece of text to tested for Flesch-Kincaid Reading Grade Level (US High school grades). Pity I use OpenOffice. Though there is Check Text Readability

    This won’t get the baby bathed. Have to pop off to find a wodge of Maurice Blanchot or maybe Derrida to see if he’s is on the scale.
