Beautiful Books: Illustrated The best-looking and most interesting website devoted to beautiful books and illustration I've seen this year. Points out the best in digitized illustration on the Web. Sample excerpt: From Harvard University's Open Collections Program comes Women Working, 1800-1930. It is a huge storehouse - 3,500 books, trade and consumer magazines, vocation pamphlets, photographs and lots more - all digitized in an annoying framed interface....But where else could one learn about the anarchist woman of yesteryear or how to raise chickens? I'd say it has the monkey stamp of quality. You should all take a peek kay.

Curious George: collecting books I have a hankering - nay, a veritable yearning - to begin collecting books.

Stanford Solar Centre: Folklore In the beginning there was only darkness and people kept bumping into each other. Fox said that people on the other side of the world had plenty of light but were too greedy to share it. Possum went over there to steal a little piece of the light. He found the Sun hanging in a tree, lighting everything up. He took a tiny piece of the Sun and hid it in the fur of his tail. The heat burned the fur off his tail. That is why possums have bald tails.

Tell us about them, please, and what everyone else has done lately?
