Reading Rat: my collation of recommended reading
Leseratte Library is my collection of electronic texts. Some have been superseded by texts posted elsewhere and the ever-expanding number of public domain ebooks now available.
Reading Log. Some of the more recent entries include a brief quote from each book.
Book Log of purchases. Not all are still in my library; they've been (re-)donated to our local library's sales.
Inactive pages, but still available:
The Cliche Has Hit the Fan probably should have been a weblog feature but wound up on this separate page.
Reconsiderations was an aggregator of links. The format might yet be repurposed.
The Colonnade: Links by Topic was a hotlist using that format.
By Subject: References was a more detailed use of the topical outline.
Cyclone 13 is about a type of sailing dinghy I once owned. Since selling mine a few years ago, I have not done much updating, but have taken a stab at a replacement Cyclone 13 weblog.
Windsurfer One Design, my first sailboard.
What follow are various collections of external links
Periodical Table: Serials by frequencyThis began as an attempt to sort by frequency of publication the Arts & Letters Daily sidebar links to magazines and book reviews. I later supplemented with the magazines list then at Common Dreams. I'm replacing the list with a dynamic blogroll on my weblog. Among the items linked at A&LD are the following without rss, and so not on my new blogroll: Age - rss | American Journalism Review | Armed Forces Journal | Australian Book Review | Axess | Book Beast | Boston Globe - Books | Boston Globe - Ideas | Chronicle of Higher Education - Chronicle Review - weblogs | Chronicle of Philanthropy | Democracy Journal | Denver Post - Books | Jewish Review of Books | Literary Review | New Atlantis | New York Press | New York Times Magazine | Newsday - Books | Newsweek | Parameters | Philosophy & Literature | Philadelphia Inquirer - Books | Poets & Writers | San Francisco Chronicle - Books | Slate - Books | Studies in Intelligence | Wall Street Journal - Books | Washington Times - Books |
P.S. same for A&LD Breaking News: Associated Press |
