Word help



what's the word that refers to a collection of various sayings, quotes, excerpts and the like, bound together in journal-like format? Something like an artist's folio, only word focused.

August splurge

The joy of anticipation: after waiting a few months to spend anything more than 2.99 on a book, I went on an August splurge. This is how I know I'm addicted. I'm sure you can relate.

The Hammer and the Blade - Paul S. Kemp
Broken Angels - Richard K. Morgan

I feel pretty ranty about woman and rape/threats in fantasy/sci-fi tonight. What the fuck is wrong with authors that can imagine magic swords, demons and downloading personalities needing to have a big fat threat of violence against women--specifically--in their books? I can usually shrug off the annoyances, but its the second major book offense in a week, and I'm pretty fucking annoyed.

Book advertising

I'm pretty sure I'm going to be avoiding any book whose blurb states a character needs to "seize her destiny." (or 'his.' I'm not sexist about it)


I recently had an email from someone promoting an indie book who wrote that, "XX writes with vigor and finesse, spinning a fantastic web of characters, allegories and thrilling escapes."



Just no.

Lion flanking library entrance
Library entrance hall!! Opened in 1911.
Ceiling of the reading room!
Rose reading room--63 ft short of the size of a football field. That's my kind of sport.

New York Public Library: for my fellow bookish people.
