Interesting words from Alice in Wonderland and The Lord of the Rings.

And another interesting contrast between Blake's Tyger and Hughes' Jaguar.

Back in the day i had links to my favorite book-related places, Homespun (where you could enter lists of your favorite, not so favorite, or whatever books, and read everyone elses) and firefly (which is for CDs and videos, and sunk when Amazon adopted a very similar model but with eCommerce attached).
I'm sorry they're gone. But I love libraryThing.
