The Bibliothecary
The Omnigatherum blog featuring links to the most
interesting and unusual vagaries of literary life I find
while wandering the internet.  Essays and articles I
like.  Reviews of books I want to read.   All interspersed
with my musings on how to enjoy reading while
smoking a pipe.

The all new and improved
Bibliothecary blog
can be found here.
