Thanks to the good people over at Metafilter, I was directed to the utterly gorgeous Digital Scriptorium. A feast of medieval and renaissance manuscripts nicely scanned for your delectations, from collections just all over the place. I could spend hours here…


Right, I’m going to try for at least 10 of these:

The Plot Against America – Philip Roth
The Book of Illusions – Paul Auster
Fury – Salman Rushdie
City of God – E.L. Doctorow
Sputnik Sweetheart – Haruki Murakami
Hallucinating Foucault – Patricia Duncker
The Wind-up Bird Chronicle – Haruki Murakami
The Midnight Examiner – William Kotzwinkle
The Unbearable Lightness of Being – Milan Kundera
W, or the Memory of Childhood – Georges Perec
In Cold Blood – Truman Capote
Franny and Zooey – J.D. Salinger
News From Nowhere – William Morris
Rabbit Run – John Updike
Go Tell it on the Mountain – James Baldwin
The Catcher in the Rye – J.D. Salinger
The Temptation of St Anthony – Gustave Flaubert

I’m also signed up for the 50 Book Challenge over at Librarything. I’m going to cheat slightly by counting books I read for academic work – but that still counts as reading, doesn’t it?
