The Latest Addition

The latest addition the collection of stuff hanging around my house: a signed print of Wondermark #442: In which Beth keeps her Books, which I have had framed, and which is now hanging on the door to my office/library1 for obvious reasons. (Apparently Sarah told her mom tonight that Sarah and I are “bibliofiblioians”, and that means “animals who love books”. Close enough.)

If you want to get a sense of whether or not Wondermark will work for you, you could probably decide just by looking at this page. Or, you know, start with the most recent and work the archives. I had seen links to it here and there around the web, but didn’t really get into it until I got a copy of Beards Of Our Forefathers. Like many webcomics, or hell, comics period, it’s hit and miss, but when it hits it hits nicely. I am certainly looking forward to Clever Tricks to Stave Off Death. (Yes, even though I can read the stuff on the web, I am looking forward to the dead tree version. Sue me.)

  1. Can I coin a new word for that? I mean I could just use study, but that’s kind of fusty. How about “offbrary”? “Librice” (pronounced “lyebris”, of course)?(back)

    She actually said that you two are libiliophibilians. I thought I was pretty smart to realize that she was talking about biblio somethings, but I did think the word she wanted was bibliophiles, as opposed to bibliophibians.
