Round Up

R.I.P. Clarence Clemons

100 greatest nonfiction books according to the Guardian.

Coolest app yet-Leafsnap

Books that have sparked an interest: The Trouble with Tom: The Strange Afterlife and Times of Thomas Paine (Bloomsbury Publishing) by Tom Collins and Bring Back Beatrice (Workman Publishing) by Jennie Griffin-Really, "Aren't you all tired of all of these odd names folks are naming their children?".

This just cracks me up-Phydough-food truck for the pups.

I've never played with , or I should probably say, built anything with Legos. I kinda, sorta think I want to build something-maybe this Lego Fallingwater. Probably a bit too advanced for a novice.

I have been spending way too much time on I Love Charts, Letters of Note-oh, how I love this site-so many lovely letters-the one from Queen Victoria to Mary Todd Lincoln is especially touching and Letterheady.

Author Ann Patchett is opening a bookstore.

Very cool periodic table playing cards.

World flag database.

Digital version of the Pentagon Papers.

Have a nice weekend.
