Okay - if you're really looking for that hard to find book and don't have time for auctions, then abebooks is where you need to go to search through 40 million titles.

Today's post deals with reading and writing. greenboathouse books is an interesting experiment in small-time publishing by Canadian authors who have been dishing out poetry, prose and photography in chapbook form since 1999. I must admit I don't personally own any of them, but I imagine I will soon. For those who are bargain hunters who don't have time to lurk and snipe on auction sites, there's isbn.nu. The site offers a quick way to compare the prices of any in-print and many out-of-print books at nine online bookstores. You can view the results with or without the shipping costs of a single book, and also find the fastest source for a book from ordering to delivery. Finally, for those who like to write instead of type, Levenger should have what you're looking for. If they don't, then you're too picky.

Here's the scoop. I read an article in Information Week and ended up here. Well, not HERE, but at another blog that I played around with. From THERE, I'm bringing over three recent findings. First, a friend of mine stumbled on the Silophone, which is one of those great abandoned stuff turned into art things. If you like words like I like words, you should like visiting TextArc. Finally, I'm always on the lookout for people that are doing original work on the web. The people at BrainPuppy seem to fit that description.
Okay, this is just for me. I hope I like it.
