Sites of the Week—July 1, 2009

I was going to write this week’s post about how awful the new Transformers 2 movie is, but it’s so bad it’s almost beyond description. Long story short—avoid it like the plague.

**Note: I expected the movie to be bad, but this was beyond bad, insulting really.

Anyway, it’s time once again for my top sites of the week. Enjoy.

A nice site with all sorts of book recommendations divided by category.

Readability

This site lets you set settings to make any webpage more readable. Simply pick your settings, drag readability.com to your browsers bookmark toolbar, and when you come to a page you want to read, click on that link in your toolbar. Styles the content in your settings for easy reading.

This is more of a specific post than a site, but it has 9 interesting UX presentations. Really interesting and helpful content on most of them.

ZooBorns

If you don’t enjoy this site you have a heart of stone. It’s a blog of baby animals from zoos. It doesn’t get much cuter than this.

UgLeah

This is the personal blog for a UX designer who works at Adaptive Path. It doesn’t get updated too frequently, but when it does, it’s usually worth it.

Tremendous News

This is a funny/snarky blog that covers a variety of topics. Almost every post at least makes me chuckle, if not laugh out loud.

This is a great site for web designers, but I enjoyed this post specifically, as my CSS skills (or lack thereof) needed a refresher.

Again, another specific post, but this one presents an interesting workflow for web design. I’m excited to try this out with my next project.

This is the website for Whitney Hess, a user experience designer. The over all site is great, but I found this specific post to be very helpful.

This is a nice collection of well designed 404 pages. I definitely need to update mine.
