This isn't going to keep me from updating the list, nor looking for new beers I haven't had, but I think the joy of the search has worn off a bit and I need to find something else to interest me in terms of searching out some new experiences. Whiskey, perhaps?

If you don't want to read the Harry Potter books, I think it's fine. (I only read them to check on their suitability for my children.) But if you haven't read a book, you probably ought not to make part of it the central metaphor of your unrelated opinion piece. You run the risk of misunderstanding and then you make a hash of your point inadvertently.

It seems like Patrick Rothfuss and George RR Martin have a one-upsmanship fight going about how badly they can abuse their fans without alienating them all.
George: I can make them wait more than 6 years for a book.
Pat: I can make them wait more than 7.
G: I can make them wait more than 20 years for the story to end.
P: I can start a TV series based on my trilogy before I've finished.
G: I can have my TV series pass the books and spoil the plot.
P: I can sell 10th Anniversary editions of my first book without any hint of the third book being ready.
G: Ooh, good one.

It no longer surprises, but it still disappoints that The Federalist writes a sympathetic brief for sexual immorality on the occasion of Hugh Hefner's death. They are, after all, the publication that went ahead and published articles on defense of prostitution and polyamory. What's a defense of a pornographer after that?
EDIT: Joe Carter is in the breach, yet again saying what needs to be said.
