Sunday Scoop #8: Weekly Reads

Hello all, welcome to the Sunday Scoop. Thanksgiving is coming up so soon, and I'm looking forward to making pies and enjoying time with the family. Still not sure how much to pig out on, but Thanksgiving just comes once a year... 

  • Linda Tirado offers a piece from the perspective of people trapped in the cycle of poverty: This Is Why Poor People's Bad Decisions Make Perfect Sense. While I still don't agree with some of her justifications (Smoking? Sure, it's a stimulant, but in the long run it will deplete your energy), this is a piece that makes you think twice about the question of, "Well, why don't they ______?" You might not agree with their decisions, but at least you might understand that person a little better. 
  • As many of you know, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is out in theaters! I personally haven't seen it yet, but here's a video review from Popsugar that discusses several aspects of the movie, such as the actors, comparing it to the first installment, etc. 
  • From Online Universities is a fantastic list of 101 Book Blogs You Need to Read. If you're familiar with book blogs, you may recognize a few of the larger blogs. 
Thanks for reading!
