Excuses, excuses

Unfortunately, some fairly urgent things have come up this week, so Roughing It Week will have to become Roughing It Fortnight. But no worries, camping is even more fun when it’s for two whole weeks!

To make up for my absence, here’s the International Children’s Digital Library where you can read fantastic kids books from now or a hundred years ago online (to be clear, they were not online a hundred years ago, at least from what I can tell). May I recommend you spend some time browsing through the alphabets? Not alphabetically, but through the alphabet books; you’ll find kitschy surprises like this Apple Pie alphabet from 1900. Its like “Antiques Roadshow” for Internet-addicted bibliophiles!
