Have you read any Fforde? If not...Well recommended.

My speech is not parsing. I am speaking in ellipsis.

I was sold as soon as I saw the Necronomicon.

Same here... which might have been obvious from my comment, though maybe not...

Re: Ultimate Book Club


Thanks guys.
In the process of working on it, I kept thinking of a viable name for the secret group in question and got aboard the alliteration train. Thought I'd share some of that crazy with you; the following are the rejected names:

- "Merchants of Mythical Tomes"
- "League of Extraordinary Librarians"
- "Collectors of Curious Tracts"
- "Curators of Cryptic Codices"
- "Absurd Archivists Association"
- "Bizzare Book Club"
- "Purveyors of Peculiar Texts"
- "Fellowship of Fantastical Folios"
- "Sorority of Shadowy Scribes"
- "Seekers of Strange Treatises"

I felt that I got carried away and went with something simpler and less pompous. It was a fun exercise though ;)

Re: Ultimate Book Club


I was going to try to avoid voting for shirts that referenced pop culture this derby...but dang it all, the "Big Whoop" book sold me on it. You've got my vote.

Wouldn't it have made more sense to replace the Doctor Who book with The Neverending Story?
