Tablet Today

Books on Israelis and Palestinians for young and old alike, Némirovsky’s world, and more

Print Email

After the brouhaha over The Shepherd’s Granddaughter, Tablet parenting columnist Marjorie Ingall compiles a list of recommended books about the Israeli Palestinian conflict for young adults. A new one for adults, Almost Dead, was written by Assaf Gavron with “humor and empathy”; our podcast Vox Tablet features host Sara Ivry’s interview with the novelist and translator. Books columnist Joshua Lambert checks out volumes on Irène Némirovsky and the Paris she inhabited, the latest from Robert Alter, and more. Plus, much more to come, here on The Scroll.

Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.
