Reading Week – Alpha Student

Category: Fun | Date: Sun 02 Nov, 2008

Note: We’re making a few small changes to Alpha Student. The one you’ll probably notice is that we’re not going to be posting every day: we know you’re busy and we don’t want to overwhelm you with posts! We’ll be aiming for about three – four posts a week from now on.

It’s reading week for me, and probably for some of you too, so I thought it’d be a good chance to point you towards a few early Alpha Student posts that you might have missed.
