Here at Slate, we are always looking for new ways to reach our readers. The image-based social networking site Pinterest has grown very quickly over the last year, and now boasts more than 20 million users per month. We decided it was time to get in on the fun. Today, we are launching 5 boards we hope will appeal to the Pinterest community. Our plan is to feature Slate favorites: the books, DVDs, recipes and other stuff mentioned in Slate articles and podcasts, and general recommendations from the Slate staff. Through our Pinterest boards you will be able to check out the latest books we’ve reviewed, see photos from our food series, “You’re Doing It Wrong” find that movie that the Culture Gabfest hosts were raving about, and even get recommendations for kids’ products from our savvy staffers. (We’ve got a lot of parents!)
