Happy early birthday to _archaicangel_. I hope you have a fabulous day tomorrow and a wonderful year to come!

I have discovered a wonderful website I must share:, the home of "great books read by great actors." The stories are all unabridged and of impressive range, from Chaucer to Saki, and the readers are a who's who of British actors, from Rufus Sewell and David Warner to Siân Phillips and Fiona Shaw. The cost per download is modest: twenty hours of the complete Jane Eyre for $16, for example. I've been listening to Bill Nighy's reading of Edgar Allan Poe's Dupin Mysteries and thoroughly enjoying it.

And speaking of books, a new widget:

Answer July—
Were is the Bee—
Where is the Blush—
Where is the Hay?

Ah, said July—
Where is the Seed—
Where is the Bud—
Where is the May—
Answer Thee—Me—

- Emily Dickinson, "Answer July"
