When I was a child, I loved reading Tikki Tikki Tembo out loud. Supposedly the author based it on a Chinese folk-tale but I have read a number of articles that dispute this. I think most kids enjoy the story because of the difficulty in repeating the young boy’s name. This has become a favorite […]

February 10th, 2008 · No Comments · Books

I always feel a tinge of remorse when a book is referenced that I have not read but feel that I should have read. I have been reading for 28 years and at the rate in which I read books, I feel guilty that there are so many that I have not gotten to. That […]

The “Bookinist” by Nils Holger Moormann

January 28th, 2008 · No Comments · Art, Books

I found this on Behind the Curtain‘s blog. It is a chair by Nils Holger Moormann. The only thing that could make this a better chair would be if it had a motor and steering. I want this chair as much as I want a library with sliding ladders!
