Recursive reading…

…or something like that.

I am presently (well, almost finished) reading John Hodgman’s book, The Areas of My Expertise, which I first mentioned here.

Something strange happened somewhere in the middle of the appendix to the paperback edition. The book actually mentioned the exact store in which I had purchased the book. What’s more, the store was mentioned inasmuch as the author had called the store to determine that the store carried no copies of this book!


New items in the Room 34 Store!

As usual I’m sure these will be of no interest to anyone besides me and the two and a half people who read this (and only marginally interesting to them), but why not take the opportunity for a shameless plug?

I’ve added a couple of new items to the Room 34 Store, including a Tai Chi & Chai Tea coffee mug and a Rosie the Riveter infant “creeper” (known to those of us not afraid to commonize brand names as a “Onesie”). Be like me! Deck out your infant in 60-year-old war propaganda!
