Paper Dept.


From the NY Times Paper Cuts blog, a piece about bookshelf etiquette.

If I buy something and read it and realize I've finished with it, it goes into a shelf that's reserved for giveaways.  I've donated sizable chunks of my book collection to people a lot more starved for reading matter than I ever will be — like a friend of mine who lost most of his books when an upstairs apartment in his building flooded and drowned a good deal of his collection.

Also, the Brooklyn Museum is having an exhibition of Japanese woodcut prints!

Last but definitely not least: I forgot to post something about Arthur C. Clarke's passing, but that's only because so much of what I wanted to say has been said better by so many other people.  The one comment I could come up with was, "Sir Arthur now knows the Nine Billion Names of God."
