While I'm gone...

...you might want to have a browse around the recently launched World Digital Library. It really is an amazing resource!

Take a look at this treasure, for example:

It's a copy of the fables of La Fontaine - in French from the mid 1800's.

There's even a 15th century copy of Aesop's Fables - with Romulus as compiler, believe it or not.

You can read these and all the other goodies online or download them as images or PDF files. I don't have time to fully explore the site, but I look forward to doing so on my return. Let me know what you think!

P.S. I heard about the site at Caustic Cover Critic here. Thanks JRSM for the link! (Caveat emptor: watch his language...)



  1. I'm not sure if you'll get this, but good luck, God speed, have a wonderful time, and bring back lots of pictures and stories.

  2. Thanks, Emma! We leave Aus on Sunday night - red eye flight.


I'd love you to leave me a message. Tell me what you like - and what you don't. Just remember that this is what we do in our family - it doesn't have to be what you do in yours...
