It's Nice That: A relaxing place. The design is amazing.
HTMLGIANT: I shouldn't be name dropping HTMLGIANT because they're likely to put The Rumpus out of business, but when I feel like literary discussion this is where I go. I'm also very fond of The Millions, Maud Newton, and Bookslut.
New York Times: Here's something you've already heard of. I go to this site more than any other. I think most of us do. We all complain about it but is there any other news website you can actually trust? We should be more supportive of the Times, I think.
Carnal Nation: Good sex writing.
The Lefsetz Letter: This is just great writing about the music industry. But it's much better when you subscribe to it as an email.
