Reading Roundup 2012.11.23

Here are just a few things I've been reading lately. Hope you had a warm and lovely Thanksgiving yesterday!

Take Back the Holidays, Patagonia catalog (Holiday 2012)
Try a $100 Christmas or a gift exchange, to focus on people rather than commercialized frenzy.

Did California Voters Defeat the Food Movement Along with Prop. 37? Mother Jones (Nov. 7, 2012)
"In short, Prop. 37 got crushed under fat stacks of cash: its supporters raised $8.7 million, vs. $45.6 million for its opponents...What do you get for $45.6 million? You get a slick, relentless, truth-challenged campaign, crafted by veteran GOP political hand and former tobacco flack Thomas Hiltachk."

GoldieBlox, a toy that combines story-reading and construction to build a simple machine.
I love the idea of following steps to make something that does something. I hope this takes off and starts a movement. Even if the movement only is for Lego to make changes to its pink sets.
