Friday procrastination: link love – Singapore, the New Yorker, and apocalyptic novels

Well it looks the like the rain has given way to sunny skies and just in time for the weekend.  Whew!  I hope you all had productive weeks and are ready to relax with a good book in the park, which is how I plan to spend my Saturday (I just can’t seem to put Wolf Hall down.)  In the meantime, I’ve collected some links to keep you busy until the end of the day.  Enjoy.
