The Linking Excuse...

If you want to get an idea of how many books Edith Wharton may have written, I suggest you read this post. Make sure you take a look at the pictures. And while you are at that excellent blog, also look at the Thomas Hardy biography, The Time-Torn Man. I am memorizing a couple of Hardy poems (one of them, of course, on death) this week and the next and I find them brilliant. For someone who started on The Mayor of Casterbridge (bad bad book to start with, especially in your early teens) and swore to stay away from Hardy ever after, I am reforming quite well.

Jason's best links of 2006, always enjoyable and some of them are phenomenally good.

Lotus recommends Eat, Pray, Love. The book has a wow cover and sounds somewhat like The Yoga School Dropout, but one point really caught my eye - that the essence of a city can be condensed to a word. Nice. Very nice.

Sometimes verses are nice. Very nice.

All thanks to you and Jason Kottke, I was able to finally catch hold of La Jetee - after a seven month search.
