Bored? Need something to read? I’ve got you covered.
From Katrin, by way of Laura (thank you! I’m so behind on reading blogs right now.): free access to a whole bunch of German academic books through the end of August. If you find something interesting, please leave a comment: my poor German and I don’t have time to wade through the whole list (even with our good friend Google Translate).
The Textile Museum is having a book sale, with some nifty things as low as $5. I already bought mine, so now I can share this with you without worrying they’ll run out (my list: the Roman, Andean and Yoruk books, each $5).
Looking for something a little older? The British Library is making a concerted effort to digitize their entire manuscript collection. So pretty! So hard to read! And what a fantastic resources for historians, artists, calligraphers.
