Old Books

Here is another great link I came across, about how medieval book collections were cataloged and indexed so they could be found on the shelves. It’s fascinating with loads of great pictures, too. I love the picture of the books chained in the shelves. Get your geek on and click on over.

New Books

I have decided to have a Risky contest in which the winner will receive 1 book from each Risky  — supplied by me. I can try to accommodate international but the expense might end up being prohibitive. I may need to send an alternate prize to a winner outside the US because shipping is crazy expensive even with Book Depository.

To enter, read the rules carefully then leave a comment to this post by Midnight Eastern on December 7, 2014.


Void where prohibited. Must be 18 to enter. No purchase necessary. International OK, but see the above. Family or employees of the Riskies can’t enter. (Sorry minions, but you’ll get your coal shortly so what’s your problem?) Your comment must be submitted by 11:59:59 PM Eastern on December 7, 2014. Winner selected at random from among the qualified entrants. One entry per person, please. Winner will be notified by email. An alternate winner will be selected if the winner does not reply within 5 calendar days. For digital books, the winner must be able to accept a digital gift from a vendor that allows gifting of books.

To enter, leave a comment where you complete one of the following questions:
