Skepchick (arts & entertainment)
REVIEWED BY: Ms. Cairo
MY RECOMMENDATION: Yes, with reservations
AMAZON SUBSCRIPTION LINK: Skepchick
WEB ADDRESS: http://skepchick.org/blog/
BLOG DESCRIPTION: Science, critical thinking, and copious amounts of snark
MY REVIEW: The description of this blog says "science and critical thinking." I found perhaps one blog that had critical thinking, the one about a woman who had a breech baby, and who was researching ways to get it to turn head downwards on its own.
Other than that... "Quickies" are links to stories on the web. Not really suitable for Kindle reading. Yes, the Kindle can access them, but there's a lot of extraneous things on these pages that have to be waded through. Then there are videos, which Kindlers can't see.
So, really, I can't give this a thumb's up. On the other hand, it does seem to have a readership on the web... so perhaps check it out there.
