    I am endlessly enchanted, entertained, and blessed by the diversity of content available to me on my PC through the www. It has pretty much supplanted my interest in TV.

    I'd like to propose thart people in TSG post their favorite sites, and any new sites they feel are worth sharing with others. Here's my first recommendation.

    http://www.aldaily.com/


    I first became aware of it as Cybereditions. It is done by one fellow in New Zealand, and is updated daily. It is now known as Arts and Letters Daily. Hope you like it.

    Yes, it is down right now. Sorry, poor timing on my part. But it is well worth checking out when it's back up.

    Here's one that is incredible, it has 100's of millions of web pages archived:

    Hiya

    I know many will think, SAD, but I am an avid book collector. Can't just sit on the web all the time. Just 90% of it :D

    http://www.justbooks.co.uk/index.asp

    JustBooks is a leading European marketplace for used, rare, second-hand, antiquarian and out-of-print books. Search in over 5 million titles

    I have found one that I was searching for from 1929. Its £30, but I don't mind.

    New site that my credit card will see :p

    Well, would you part with your hard earned cash for it?

    How much to insure it, and it'll be just my luck that I open it for a read, and the pages disintegrate. :D
