Links for 6.27.10: Summertime, and the abs are not so easily obtained

*Religion: Dudes. The Swedenborgian national convention was held here last week. Please read up on Swedenborgianism, as there is no other religion in existence (not even Zoroastrianism) that is more fun to say aloud.
*Blogging: Of the book publishing industry and bloggers – Are readers the new mommies? (I write that sentence not with relish, but with sadness.)
