Mid Week Reads: Children and Reading

Happy Independence Day (tomorrow)! Here are a few quick links.

I liked both this posts: this mother who doesn't want her daughter to be "nice", and this response to it on Jezebel.

These fan illustrations of what happened after the Harry Potter books ended (i.e., who married whom and how many children they had) are beautiful. Poor Hermione, though, stuck with Ron. (Actually, now I think about it, Ron reminds me of Ross: whiny and self-entitled.)

And this isn't on topic (and I've probably linked to it before), but as someone who loves reading advice columns, I love The Bad Advisor. All the drama, and none of the politeness. Enjoy!

By the way, what RSS reader do you use now that Google Reader has passed away? I'm using Feedly and The Old Reader, but I'm not really happy with either. Feedly's okay, but it doesn't let you search (!) and it's a little difficult to skip posts (unless I'm doing something wrong). The Old Reader is sadly slow and buggy (or maybe just slow -- I seem to have to wait for minutes to be able to scroll down). Anything that's better?
