Very Short List 

Every now and then the title of the daily e-mail from Very Short List urges me to not hit delete. Today's culture du jour is about a project on Library Thing called "I See Dead People's Books," a growing list of the books found in the libraries of famous dead folks.

There's something appealing about picturing yourself in, say, F. Scott Fitzgerald's library and craning your neck sideways to see what he's been reading. This website is no substitute for such an experience, but, like the bottom-trawling that internet browsing has become these days, there's a chance to net a tasty morsel.

Got something to say? Send a letter to the editor and we'll publish your feedback in print!
