Emergency Books & TurnipFish

(both via if:book)

Litro's Emergency Books. "I like the idea of literature being, like cigarettes, something one can be 'caught short' without... in this age of information overload the reverse more often feels true."

And from Litro's creator: "I like to read a book, but sometimes my pockets just aren't large enough, or my journey long enough."

Amen to that. I've already printed out three of the Poe stories to have on hand when I feel like a bite to read.

And now for the TurnipFish. I haven't watched the whole thing yet, but I love the idea. Check it out:

Wouldn't want to read Moby Dick that way, but it's still cool.
